SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) — Firefighters doused a blaze on the roof of a Tyson Foods facility in Springdale.

Crews responded to a structure fire call Wednesday morning at the plant in Springdale. Officials told the Northwest Arkansas Times an exhaust flue on the roof overheated and caught part of the roof on fire.

There were no reports of injuries.

On Monday, 10 employees were taken to a hospital as a precaution after ammonia leaks at Tyson and Cargill plants. Five-hundred employees in all were evacuated.
