(Council Bluffs) A spark caused a fire inside of a paint booth at Midwestern Equipment in Council Bluffs Tuesday morning.
The Omaha World Herald says an employee was painting equipment inside a booth designed to contain flammable vapors when a spark caused paint chemicals to catch fire. The extinguishing system inside the booth was unable to squelch the fire.
Firemen were able to contain the fire within about 10 minutes. No one was injured in the fire and the damage reported was minimal.
