Crews responded to a blaze Tuesday morning at the Harley-Davison Vehicle Operations plant in Springettsbury Township.

It was a minor fire that started in the company's dust collection system, said York Area United Fire and Rescue Fire Chief Daniel Hoff.

"It's not uncommon for those systems to get a hot ember or spark from the normal processing to get in there and start things up," Hoff said. 

The fire happened about 5 a.m. in the 1400 block of Eden Road, according to York County 911.
