HAZLE TOWNSHIP — Firefighters in Luzerne County were called out Thursday to a plant that makes bottle caps.

The fire started around 9 a.m. at Silgan White Cap along Jaycee Drive near Hazleton.

The chief tells us he believes the fire started in an oven and spread to the ventilation system.

Workers did evacuate the building, but they are back inside.
