A Tracker Marine plant in Miami, Okla., sustained about $30,000 in damage after fumes from abandoned fiberglass materials ignited during the weekend. No injuries were reported.

The Miami Fire Department responded to an alarm shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday at the plant, Robert Wright, a captain with the fire department, told NewsOK.com.

The fire started in the grinding room, where employees grind excess fiberglass off a boat when it comes out of the mold, he said. Firefighters found abandoned fiberglass materials that had been left in a corner of the room.

The Miami plant employs 300 and builds the Tahoe family runabout and deckboat.

No work schedules were changed as a result of the fire.
