Authorities say a Beatrice manufacturing plant has resumed production after a fire.

Fire crews were sent to the Neapco plant a little after 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

Beatrice Fire Capt. Jake Carrel says the plant's fire sprinkler system kept down the flames before firefighters arrived to extinguish the blaze.

No injuries were reported by firefighters or the 22 plant employees who were on duty.

Carrel says it looked like an air compressor's cooling system failed and that framed walls around the compressor had been blown out. But Neapco's Mike Rudloff told said there was no explosion before the fire.

Rudloff says the plant resumed operation Sunday morning.

The plant makes vehicle driveshaft equipment.
