CLEVELAND — Multiple fire crews were on scene battling a fire at a warehouse in Cleveland on Wednesday morning.
Cleveland police told 3News that a fire broke out at A.J. Rose Manufacturing Company, located at 3115 West 38th Street in Cleveland.
Cleveland Fire says that there are no injuries reported at this time.
According to A.J. Rose's official website, they are a "global supplier of stamped metal components and assemblies that require high precision and no tolerance for error."
Over 50 firefighters responded to the scene, where the fire was under control by 10:08 A.M. Cleveland Fire says that the explosions reported were propane tanks from tow motors.
Dan Pritchard, CEO and President of A.J. Rose Manufacturing Co. released the following statement regarding Wednesday's fire:
"All A.J. Rose Manufacturing employees working first shift at our Cleveland manufacturing facility are safe after a fire broke out today at our 3118 W. 38th operation. Our employees were safely evacuated, and we are very grateful that no one was hurt in the incident. The safety of everyone in our facility is always a top priority.
We thank the Cleveland Fire Department (CFD) and hazmat units that quickly responded to the plant and contained the fire. The fire caused some nitrogen tanks used in our tooling processes and propane tanks use for our forklifts to explode. CFD has contained that threat and brought the fire under control.
We are fully cooperating with CFD and with OSHA as they investigate the cause of the incident. We have notified our second- and third-shift workers that the plant will be shut down today and that they should not report for work. We will continue updating our employees on the status of the operation going forward. That is all the information we have at this time."
