Manufacturer Up and Running After Oven Fire
An industrial oven fire did not keep a manufacturing business down for long. According to a local report, AAI Power-Flo Technologies of Auburn, N.Y., was fully operational by Monday morning after the fire on Saturday.
The Auburn Fire Department received a call for a fire-alarm activation at the electrical equipment distributor early Saturday morning. Firefighters found “smoke pushing out of every area it could find its way out of,” and the interior of the building was full of heavy smoke. Firefighters extinguished the fire —reportedly in a baking oven used to dry out motor windings — in minutes.
The company said it was operating by 6:30 a.m. Monday with no structural damage to the building. The oven, which did not appear to be heavily damaged, was not being used for safety reasons.
