A machine malfunction is being blamed for an early morning fire at the FMC Industrial Chemicals Group plant on Sawyer Road.

Fire crews responded this morning to calls of smoke filling the second and third floors of the plant. Hazmat crews were also called in case there were chemical issues to contend with. No damage estimates are available as yet.

One firefighter was treated at ECMC for burns.

Reports on his condition have yet to be released.
