News Alert: Plant Fire Closes College Dr. In Spartanburg County

Spartanburg County, SC --
Firefighters have College Drive in Spartanburg County closed on Monday due to a plant fire.

The fire at Platronics Seals at 5010 College Drive started about 12:15 a.m. Monday.

Spartanburg County Emergency Management spokesman Doug Bryson said DHEC is on the scene along with several fire departments. Health officials are monitoring water for chemical runoff.

No injuries have been reported due to the fire. Part of the building is near collapse, so firefighters must stay outside the plant to put out flames and massive amounts of smoke, according to Bryson.

Platronics Seals makes industrial packaging for automotive and aerospace businesses.

They set up the plant in Spartanburg County in 2008, according to the companty website.
