No major injuries were reported from an Oct. 4 fire that caused extensive damage to Adell Plastics' compounding plant in Baltimore.
The fire was reported shortly after 1 p.m., according to the Baltimore Sun. More than 200 firefighters eventually responded to the blaze, which was so intense that some of the plant's walls started to collapse. Smoke from the fire was visible for miles, the article said.
All employees exited the plant safely. One firefighter was taken to a hospital after being treated for heat exhaustion, according to the article. The cause of the fire hasn't yet been identified.
Baltimore-based Adell was founded in 1957 and makes compounds based mainly on engineering resins for a variety of markets. The firm also does toll compounding. In addition to Baltimore, Adell operates plants in Petersburg, W. Va., and Denham Springs, La.
