Fire contained at chemical plant

June 14, 2010

Indianapolis firefighters needed 20 minutes to control a chemical fire at Superior Solvents and Chemicals, 400 W. Regent St., Monday morning. A worker was pouring caustic soda beads into a 1,000-gallon tank of methanol when the chemicals flashed and caught insulation above the tank on fire. No one was hurt or exposed to the chemicals.
