On Tuesday morning, around 11:30am, fire crews rushed to the Virginia Public Utilities, on a report of a fire on the roof.

When they arrived, they found a fire had taken over an area about 10 feet by 12 feet, according to Fire Chief Dan L'Allier.

The fire was quickly contained, although because Virginia firefighters had been training nearby with Hibbing crews, they had more manpower show up to help just in case.

Mt. Iron and Eveleth also arrived on scene, and helped with the equipment afterwards.

The cause is under investigation. The plant continued to operate as normal.
