A fire inside a Cary factory damaged machinery and filled the building with smoke Monday afternoon but was quickly extinguished.
The fire broke out inside the Tru-Cut Manufacturing plant, 231 Jandus Road, about 1:50 p.m., said Cary Fire District Capt. Ken Destree.
When firefighters arrived, smoke was billowing out of an overhead door and there was a small fire in a machine's ductwork. Firefighters were able to find the fire quickly and extinguish it before it was able to spread past the machine.
"They were planning on still running their second shift tonight," Destree said.
One female employee of the factory was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation Monday night, but officials said it was likely due to a malfunction in the machinery.
Fox River Grove and Algonquin firefighters assisted at the scene.
Tru-Cut manufactures masonry drill bits and cutting tools, according to the company website.
