Industrial fire forces evacuation

A fire in an industrial oven in a Huntington Beach building injured one employee and forced an evacuation, according to authorities.

Firefighters responded to a call in the 15000 block of Chemical Lane at about noon Saturday after an employee from Advanced Composites Products and Technology Inc. reported that a resin material had caught fire inside the oven, according to a Huntington Beach Fire Department statement.

An employee extinguished the fire.

The Fire Department spent a few hours ventilating the building to get out smoke and odors and making sure the fire was out.
