TEMPLE (October 8, 2010)—A smoky fire Thursday night forced the evacuation of Doane Pet Care at 3401 Eberhardt Rd in Temple.
Twenty-one employees were in the building at the time, fire officials said Friday.
The fire broke out in a dryer unit just before 9:30 p.m. Thursday and the first units on the scene reported that heavy smoke was pouring from the building.
Because the fire was in a manufacturing facility, a second alarm was ordered.
Damage was limited to the interior of the dryer.
An equipment malfunction caused the fire, officials said.
The last units left the scene just after 11:30 p.m. Thursday.
