Sprinklers douse Elk Grove factory fire

By Christopher Placek

An automatic sprinkler system helped extinguish a fire at a manufacturing plant in Elk Grove Village Friday, authorities said.

The fire started in a paint spraying room about 5 p.m. at Advanced Valve Technologies, located at 800 Busse Road. Employees of the company also used dry chemical extinguishers to put out the fire, said Lt. Scott Peterson of the Elk Grove Village Fire Department.

Damages were limited to the paint spraying room, and no injuries were reported, Peterson said.

Fire crews remained on site for about an hour to ventilate the building.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation Friday night.
