WEST BERLIN Firefighters battled a three-alarm blaze in a chemical plant Thursday, with solar panels complicating their efforts.
The fire started before 1:30 p.m. at 160 Cooper Rd., behind the Sahara Sam's indoor water park on Route 73. The address houses ResinTech, which manufactures "a broad range of ion exchange resins for water and wastewater treatment," according to the firm's website.
A statement released on the website said that the manufacturing facility of Aries FilterWorks, a division of ResinTech, was damaged, but that ResinTech's corporate offices were not. It added that "there were no injuries to employees at the facility and no danger to the surrounding public."
