Lincoln Fire And Rescue say a kiln was the cause of an early morning fire.

Authorities say it happened near 47th and Fremont at Snyder Industries.

Employees reported the fire just before 5 Monday morning.

Snyder Industries uses kilns to manufacture plastic.

Authorities say one of the kilns got too hot, causing the ceiling to start on fire.

Sprinklers extinguished most of the fire, while LFR took care of hot spots.

No word on what the total damage was, crews on scene say most of the damage is from water.

No injuries were reported.
