Firefighters had the fire knocked down by 9:30 a.m., but were still putting out hotspots.

Doeden said fire officials had an idea of what started the blaze, but he said he couldn't confirm a cause, as the investigation had just started.

He said the workshop area of the plant suffered the most fire and smoke damage.
