JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department on Wednesday night extinguished a fire at a warehouse off of Duval Road southeast of Jacksonville International Airport.
Firefighters say a hopper full of aluminum caught fire and the flames spread into the warehouse of Enkei Florida, located at 1401 Wheels Road. A hazmat team responded to the scene.
Employees called for help around 9:20 p.m. and evacuated the building. No injuries were reported as a result of the fire.
Firefighters said the fire is all metal, so it was difficult to extinguish and was spreading at one point. JFRD had to call for metal-x extinguishers for metal-specific fires. Crews were flowing water into the machinery to lower the temperature.
