A fire at Wingfoot Goodyear in Bristol Township, Pa., forced the business to close part of its operations yesterday.
Fire fighters were called to the scene at 2:14 a.m. and found smoke coming from the center of the building. According to local reports, the fire involved a tire dust collection machine, which is used in the retreading process. As workers buff down the tread on an old tire, the machine collects the dust.
No injuries were reported.
