GARDEN GROVE An industrial oven caught fire Thursday morning, April 27, causing an estimated $150,000 in damage and forcing an evacuation of a container-making company, fire officials said.
No one was injured.
The fire broke out around 10:50 a.m. in an industrial area on the 7300 block of Lampson Avenue, near Western Avenue, said Capt. Thanh Nguyen of the Garden Grove Fire Department.
A fan motor in the oven caught fire. The blaze was contained to the oven and a ventilation duct, which went to the outside of the Container Supply Company’s building.
The company specializes in manufacturing plastic and metal containers, such as paint cans and ice cream tubs.
About 24 firefighters put out the flames in 45 minutes, Nguyen said. The building wasn’t damaged.
