Was there a fire at the Domino Sugar factory in Baltimore?


SMOKE was seen pouring out of the Domino Sugar factory in Baltimore, Maryland on Tuesday, April 20.

The nearly 100-year-old refinery processes about 6.5million pounds of raw cane sugar in a day.

Was there a fire at the Domino Sugar factory?

A fire broke out at the Baltimore plant on Tuesday. No injuries were reported and the company announced that all employees were able to escape the building safely.

No firefighters were injured in the blaze, Blair Adams, the Baltimore City Fire Department spokeswoman said.

Firefighters were working on extinguishing the fire on Tuesday - about two hours after first-responders arrived to the scene.

The three-alarm fire began after a conveyer belt in the factory took a burning substance from one area to other parts of the building, Adams said.

The cause of the fire was being investigated.

Is this the first time a fire broke out at the factory?

In November 2007, an explosion occurred at the facility which forced it to shutter for a week.

The facility's powdered sugar mill was lost in the explosion.

The cause for the explosion was caused by a sugar dust buildup, the Baltimore Sun reported. Three workers were injured in the explosion.

The facility employs 510 full-time workers.
