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.
