At approximately 3 p.m., the Lakeland Fire Department responded to a structure fire at Finzer Roller located at 733 Kraft Road. A fire began in a rubber by-product filtration mechanism located outside of the company’s manufacturing building.
The filtration mechanism is located directly outside and adjacent to the main building where manufacturing takes place and is connected to the manufacturing building through a duct system. Although the exact cause of the fire is yet to be determined by state investigators, the fire is known to have begun in the filtration mechanism, likely as a result of some friction created in the normal manufacturing process.
