KWTX reports that a fire broke out Wednesday morning in a Waco factory, forcing employees to evacuate the building.

Waco Fire Department crews arrived at Packless Industries around 9:15 a.m.. According to firefighters, a vat of oil caught fire in one of the back buildings and led to the building being filled with black smoke.

Employees were able to tell fire crews were the fire was, and also help guide the HazMat teams who were called to the scene.

The fire crews were able to get the flames out quickly, and the main matter was to clear all of the smoke away. There was no damage done to the establishment, and big industrial fans were being used to clear the building of all the smoke.
