HUDSON, N.H. — The sprinkler system in an 83,000-square-foot industrial building did most of the work to douse a fire in a metal lathe Tuesday, but firefighters still had to contain water that was contaminated with oils used in the lathe.
Firefighters quickly called for a second-alarm when they arrived at Omni Components Corp., 46 River Road, about 11:55 a.m., according to a report released by the Hudson Fire Department.
The fire had activated the building’s sprinkler system, which doused most of the fire, but firefighters had to contain the contaminated water, and make sure the fire had not extended to the building.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but is not suspicious, according to the report.
The building was not damaged by the fire in the machine.
