MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) - Firefighters in New Hampshire have contained a fire at a plastics plant in Merrimack.

Crews arrived at the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics facility around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a fire in a large fabric coating tower. Firefighters used carbon dioxide to prevent spreading burning oils with water.

Firefighters determined the blaze was contained to the equipment and didn’t spread to the building. It was declared under control at around 1:20 p.m. No injuries were reported. St. Gobain later resumed its normal operations.

Fire officials say the flames were sparked by a buildup of processing material in a spill tray that overheated and ignited.
