NEW LENOX — Fire damaged a small manufacturing company Wednesday afternoon.
Fire Chief Jon Mead said crews were called at 12:17 p.m. to Modern Food Concepts, 22003 Howell Drive, where stovetops and other steel kitchen items are made. Four people were inside but were able to escape without injury.
“It took about an hour to put (the fire) out. We had to cut through some metal to get into the attic,” Mead said. “The cause is still under investigation but this appears accidental.”
Reports estimated the business sustained $15,000 of damage.
