A sprinkler system quickly extinguished a fire that erupted when an oil line on an injection mold machine malfunctioned on Monday night.

The fire was reported at 9:10pm on Monday, March 17th.  

"From what we can tell, four to six sprinkler heads contained and extinguished the fire," said Battalion Chief John Thomas with the Seymour Fire Department.

The Valeo plant is the county's largest employer with 1,750 workers.  If the fire had spread and caused significant damage, it could have had devastating repercusions on the county's people, and the economy of the county itself.
