VAN BUREN, Ark. (AP) - Van Buren firefighters have extinguished a fire inside a Simmons Foods plant in Van Buren.

Officials say there were no injuries as a result of the fire that was reported about 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Fire Department Officer Stanley Clark told the Times Record (https://bit.ly/1k7DbGA ) that it appears the fire was started by oil from a ruptured line into a boiler. Clark says the fire was contained to the boiler room, but that it caused a significant amount of smoke damage.
