A Tuesday-morning fire in the dust-collection system of a Red Lion business caused minimal damage, a fire official said.
Red Lion Deputy Fire Chief Joseph Yahnke said fire crews were called to David Edward Ltd., a furniture manufacturing business at 252 N. Franklin St., at 11:08 a.m.
A fire started in an outside dust collector, but it didn't have a chance to spread because employees did an excellent job knocking down flames until firefighters arrived, Yahnke said. The fire was called under control about 11:49, he said.
There was minimal damage to the dust-collection system, but some maintenance will need to be done, Yahnke said.
One firefighter cut his hand, but other than that there were no injuries, the deputy chief said.
Fire crews remained on scene until about 1:30 p.m., dousing hot-spots and mopping up, he said.
Bob Huot, plant engineer at David Edward Ltd., said the small fire did not affect production.
"It was just a hiccup -- we didn't really stop producing," Huot said. "We didn't even have to evacuate the plant."
Assisting were emergency crews from Dallastown, Yoe and York Township's Goodwill No.1, Yahnke said.
