Fire in compressor shuts down ice cream plant production line

September 20, 2010

A production line at the Good Humor-Breyers Ice Cream plant on Frederick Street was shut down Monday following a fire in a compressor at the plant, a Hagerstown Fire Department spokesman said.

The fire was discovered at 9:43 a.m. and had been extinguished by a maintenance worker by the time firefighters arrived, Capt. Russell Grim said.

The fire caused smoke to spread through the plant and it took some time to get the smoke out of the building, Grim said.

A production line was shut down as a result of the incident and Grim said he believed the line was going to be closed for the rest of the day Monday.

Work including changing some air filters in the plant will have to be done, Grim said.

A person who answered the phone at the plant Monday night said no one was there who could talk about the fire.
