MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Cumberland County business was evacuated for a fire early Tuesday.
A spokeswoman for Fry Communications, on Pleasant View Drive in Silver Spring Township, said the fire started around 2:30 a.m. after a small explosion in a gas-fired dryer unit on one of the company’s printing press lines.
There were no injuries or building damage.
Fry Communications prints magazines and comic books. The two-story dryer is used to dry ink.
It took firefighters about 90 minutes to extinguished the flames. Firefighters say they had to deal with zero visibility because of heavy smoke.
The spokeswoman said the remainder of the plant was not affected. She said production has resumed with only one press out of commission.
Fry Communications has 15 press lines at five facilities in the area.
