Several local and state agencies rushed to contain a fire that broke out Wednesday afternoon at the Suit-Kote asphalt plant in Cortlandville.

Fire officials said the call for assistance came in around 5:30 p.m., and units arrived to find plastic pellets the company uses for paving ablaze near storage tanks filled with liquid asphalt.

The threat of those tanks catching fire brought out specialized units. Firefighters gained control of the fire in about 1 hour.  

"Hazmat response was generated by what they do here with the liquid asphalt, the paving products. Not sure 100% what was burning, so we had the city hazmat team, city of Cortland Hazmat Team respond, bringing in foam as well," said Mike Biviano, deputy chief the Cortlandville Fire Department.

According to fire crews, no injuries were reported and the investigation into what sparked the fire is underway.
