A fire at Lindamar Industries in Paso Robles appears to have been caused by a fault in the ventilation system, according to the Paso Robles Department of Emergency Services.

Firefighters were called to the business on Commerce Way Friday morning for a report of smoke coming from the back of the building. They were reportedly able to contain the fire in about 18 minutes and prevent it from spreading beyond the ventilation system.

Emergency officials say all of the employees were evacuated during the incident and no one was hurt.

Lindamar Industries manufactures plastic bags and packaging.

At about 11:15 a.m., while firefighters were still at the scene, emergency officials received a call about another fire on 15th Street near the railroad tracks.

CAL FIRE crews arrived to find some brush and a fence on fire. Officials say firefighters were able to contain the fire in about ten minutes.

The cause is under investigation.
