No injuries were reported early Thursday after a fire started in a paint booth inside a factory on North Bridge Street and spread to the roof. The blaze at International Container Co., 110 North Bridge St., was reported shortly after 4 a.m., Fire Capt. Kevin Cavagnac said.
The fire spread from the paint booth to the roof via a vent pipe. It was quickly extinguished from inside the building and the firefighters cut open the roof around the vent pipe with power saws to check for and prevent further extension, Cavagnac said.
