The fire last week at Holland Alloys caused more than $2.5 million in damages and was due to the manufacturing process at the plant on 136th Avenue between Quincy and New Holland streets in Holland Township.

The cause of the blaze at the supplier of castings for a variety of industries is undetermined but not suspicious, according to Holland Township Fire Chief Jim Kohsel.

There were no injuries.

The fire caused about $1.5 million in damages to the building and $1 million to contents, Kohsel said today.

The fire call came in around 6:24 p.m. Friday as smoke was spotted at the rear of the facility.

Cardboard, wood and plastic inside the building caused the fire to spread quickly, Kohsel said.

All three Holland Township stations responded. Park Township, Port Sheldon Township and Zeeland City also assisted at the scene.
