Juneau Fire Department Responds To Small Fire At Sensient Flavors

(Juneau) The Juneau Fire Department was dispatched to a small fire at Sensient Flavors Thursday night. Chief Curt Ninmann says the call came in around 7:45pm as an explosion, but he says it was very minor.

Ninmann says the small fire caused a spark in a dust collection system resulting in a release of pressure that disengaged an exhaust hose. There were no injuries. There was no damage to equipment, but a door frame was damaged. Juneau initially called in mutual aid from multiple departments, but they were called off within a half hour.

The Juneau Fire Department was on scene for around 45 minutes. Sensient is reviewing the incident to determine a cause.
