Norfolk firefighters extinguish machine fire
NORFOLK - Norfolk firefighters have extinguished a padding-mixing machine fire at the M-P Global building on Old Hadar Road north of Norfolk. Norfolk Fire Division Captain Steve Bettendorf says the call came in at around 5:45 Monday afternoon. He says when firefighters arrived, moderate to heavy smoke was coming from the building. Employees had evacuated the building after trying to extinguish the fire. Bettendorf says built-in extinguishing systems within the machine and building helped to keep the fire isolated to one area. Firefighters quickly extinguished the remaining fire. There were no injuries. The damage amount is unknown.
