A fire early Wednesday at a steel plant in Perrysburg caused $23,000 damage to equipment, authorities said.
No one was injured, Perrysburg Deputy Fire Chief Wade Johnson said.
A fire at American Steel Treating Inc., 525 W. 6th St., was reported about 6:15 a.m. and extinguished within an hour, Chief Johnson said.
The fire was confined to a furnace dust collector and was attributed to “human error,” the chief said. He did not elaborate.
