MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

Crews responded to a fire in the dry/hopper system at Quality Ingredients early Sunday morning. No one was injured.

According to a press release, authorities credit workers at the facility for helping to contain the fire in the hopper unit before Marshfield fire arrived.

Crews conducted an interior attack on the second floor Quality Ingredients through three different vent access areas to cool and suppress the fire.

Authorities say staff self-evacuated from the building and crews say there was some product loss due to the fire and use of water to put it out. They say there was also some minor heat damage inside vent tubing and the hopper.

The fire was contained by 4:35 Sunday morning.
