Firefighters Extinguish Small Blaze at Quad/Graphics

A fire started in a hopper inside one building of the expansive industrial building Saturday.

The Sussex Fire Department spent Saturday afternoon extinguishing a small fire at the Quad/Graphics plant.

Sussex Fire Chief Corky Curtis said the blaze started in a hopper near a loading bay off of Highway 74. Curtis said the emergency fire control systems kicked in and controlled the fire. The fire was contained to one building, but employees in that building were evacuated.

No flames or smoke were visible from the exterior of the building, and no injuries were reported. Five engines from Sussex and Lisbon were dispatched to the scene.

Firefighters were on the scene just before noon Saturday, and ensured the safety systems had successfully extinguished the fire. Crews were still on the scene at roughly 1:15 p.m. monitoring the scene.
