GENEVA – The Geneva Fire Department responded to a machine fire at 10:25 p.m. Nov. 7 at Industrial Hard Chrome, 501 Fluid Power Drive, officials announced in a news release.

First-responders arrived at the business within four minutes and observed smoke coming from several open overhead doors on the building.

Firefighters also saw visible flames inside the building coming from a large machine, which is used for final buffing and polishing of chrome-plated metal products by the company.

The fire, which was extinguished around 11:30 p.m., was confined to the machine and its dust collection system.

Nobody was injured and there was no structural damage to the building or any of the other machines.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No damage estimate is available at this time.
 
The Geneva Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the St. Charles, Batavia, West Chicago, and Elburn fire departments as well as the Geneva Police Department.
