No injuries were reported after a fire broke out at Frederick Asphalt on Thursday.
The call came in at 12:05 p.m. for units to respond to the plant in the 4000 block of Buckeystown Pike, according to Tom Coe, emergency services deputy chief at the Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue Services.
Thirteen units responded and brought the fire under control in 22 minutes, he said.
The cause and extent of the damage is still being determined, but he said an asphalt processing machine caught fire, which then extended to a dump truck.
“The company is still assessing the value of the damage,” he said.
The fire is under investigation, but Coe said that it was determined to be accidental.
