The fire was reported at 2:40 p.m. Tuesday at the plant on Albant Street. The cause of the fire is not known at this time. Caldwell Fire worked with fire departments from surrounding towns to attack the flames. "We took a defensive approach," Caldwell Fire Marshal Alan Perry said. "Accountability for everybody inside was made and we conducted suppression operations from there." Everyone got out safely and no employees were injured in the fire, according to Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas. "Well, all I know, the most important part is that all of the employees are out safely," he said in a live interview with KTVB. "That's the most important issue to us, for now. We're obviously very, very concerned for them, their business."
