Batavia firefighters say an employee mixing flammable chemicals without proper grounding caused a chemical flash fire at a business at 11:10 a.m. Monday in the 400 block of north Kirk Road.
The fire singed the ceiling of the flammable liquids storage room at the facility, triggering a fire suppressing foam system that stopped the fire from doing more damage, fire officials said.
