Construction causes fire at Fremont Heinz plant

FREMONT — Construction work on steel beams at the Heinz USA plant sparked a fire that caused $25,000 in damage.

Fremont firefighters respon|ded to the fire off Ohio Avenue at 7:30 p.m. Monday. Heat from the beam work apparently set fire to wood near the ceiling of a building in which vinegar and other items were stored at the west end of the plant.

Fire damage was limited to the ceiling area and electrical wiring. The building had a sprinkler system that was activated, but the fire started above the sprinklers, firefighters said. Nobody was injured in the fire.
