Fire reported at Crane Pumps

PIQUA – Firefighters from Piqua and Covington are on the scene of a fire at Crane Pumps, 1950 Covington Ave.

They were dispatched just before 3 p.m. on a report of smoke and flames coming from the roof, possibly from a vent.

Firefighters arrived to find black smoke coming from a roof vent.

The business was evacuated as firefighters searched for the cause. It was determined that some dust apparently caught fire around the vent at the ceiling/roof level.

The building was ventilated and a section of roof cut away to expose the burned area and extinguish the burning area.

Firefighters were on the scene for about two hours.
