Firefighters called to Henderson manufacturing plant

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Firefighters were called to a glass manufacturing plant in Henderson Saturday morning.

The company off Facet Road has furnaces used to melt glass-making materials, and officials say about 350 yards of molten glass leaked out of one of those furnaces.

There was never a fire, but firefighters worked to keep the melted glass from damaging steel beams that support the building.

No injuries were reported.
