YUMA, Ariz. (From news reports) -- The Yuma Fire Department responded to a fire at an International Paper Company facility on Friday night, April 5.
Officials said they arrived at around 8:15 p.m. and discovered that machinery inside the building was on fire, and the fire suppression sprinkler system was keeping the fire contained.
The fire was originally discovered by employees working at the facility who initially attempted to extinguish the fire themselves. When their efforts were not successful, a manual pull station alarm was activated, according to officials.
Shortly after that, officials said the heat from the fire began to activate the sprinkler heads which contained the fire to the machinery where the fire had started.
Fire damage was limited to the area of the machinery, and the ceiling area above.
However, officials said the open spaces of the building sustained additional smoke damage.
No injuries to employees or fire department personnel were reported.
