Several dozen firefighters from departments in Lancaster and York Counties responded to a fire at Donsco, Inc. on North Front Street in Wrightsville today. The call, which was originally classified as a structure fire with entrapment, came in at 10:41 this morning. WGAL earlier reported that a rescue operation had been underway, and a Facebook report stated that all occupants escaped the building safely. No injuries have been reported. Firefighters brought the fire under control within about an hour.
According to a person at the scene, the fire started when hot metal came in contact with a flammable liquid and caught fire. A spokesperson at the scene told workers that they could not return to the building at that time due to the amount of smoke in the building but that the company would buy them lunch at Burning Bridge Tavern. She also said they would be paid for the entire day but acknowledged that some of them still had keys and clothes in lockers inside the building.
