City and volunteer firefighters rushed to M&M Sheet Metal at 2104 Marydale Ave. in Old Lycoming Township when a small fire erupted in a dust collector about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to township Fire Capt. Joseph Hopple.

The fire was brought under control within 10 minutes, but it took another 20 minutes for firefighters to put it out, Hopple said, adding that the dust collector had to be disassembled.

The fire was confined to the unit. In addition to township and city firefighters, crews also responded from Hepburn Township, Woodward Township. Jersey Shore and Loyalsock Township.
