UPDATE: Fire breaks out inside Wrigley plant

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Tense moments at the Wrigley plant on Jersey Pike Wednesday night when a fire broke out inside the building.

Just before 7:00, employees told Chattanooga firefighters they heard an explosion and then saw flames around the dust collection system.

The fire spread from there, breaking through the roof at one point.

The fire suppression system helped to keep the blaze from spreading.

Plant employees, who'd evacuated the building by the time firefighters arrived, told them the burning material was starch.

No injuries were reported. The fire was extinguished before it could cause extensive damage to the plant.

The cause is under investigation.
