A fire started just before midnight on a production line at Harley-Davidson Inc. in Springettsbury Township, according to York County 911 dispatchers. 

The fire, which started when filters in a machine ignited, was out shortly after crews arrived.

"It was really a non-incident," said Joe Madzelan, battalion chief for York Area United Fire and Rescue. "Filters are disposable, so it's easy to catch fire."

There were no injuries or damage to the factory reported. 

Workers were evacuated for about 30 minutes while crews finished extinguishing flames. 

Madzelan said after the fire was out, crews worked to cool off metal frames with water so nothing else ignited.
