Cayce Department of Public Safety crews responded to a fire at a steel plant Thursday morning.

Several aluminum-manganese alloy briquettes caught fire Friday morning at a Commercial Metal Co. warehouse off 12th Street Extension before noon, said the company’s Jeff Adams.

At least one firetruck responded to put out the blaze. No one was injured in the incident, and crews were cleaning the area up by 1 p.m. It is unknown how the fire started, Adams said.
