MIDDLEPORT — A small electrical fire broke out at the FMC plant in the village Monday morning.

The fire, which a company spokesman described as a "small electrical fire," ignited about 8 a.m. Monday in a groundwater pump house on FMC's property. The pump house supports the water treatment plant and is not part of the plant's operation. No chemicals were involved, the company noted in a statement.

Middleport Fire Department quickly contained the fire as FMC's emergency plan was implemented and notification was given to the Village of Middleport, the Royalton-Hartland school district and the state Department of Environmental Conservation. 

No injuries were reported and the plant did not cease operations. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
