A minor fire incident at Curtis PR

A minor fire incident at Curtis PR

Carolina,  Puerto  Rico: The  manufacturing  facility  Curtis  Instruments,  Puerto  Rico, experienced  a  minor  fire  incident  on  Thursday,  Jan.  14, 2021.  

The  small  fire  was  localized  to  a  single  piece  of equipment. Only  a  small  area  in  the  plant  was affected.  The  fire  was  fully  and  immediately  extinguished  by  Curtis  employees,  using  on-site  fire extinguishers.

The  only  impact  of  the  event,  that  temporarily  affected  the  plant,  was  the  resulting  smoke.  The unit’s  evaporator  failed,  creating  smoke  when  oil  inside  the  machine  ignited.  The  local  fire department  arrived  very  quickly  and  checked  the  building’s  safety. Large  smoke  extraction systems  were  used  to  immediately  clear  the  smoke.  

Foremost,  no employees were  hurt  in  the  fire.  Two  employees  suffered  only  minor smoke inhalation  and  were  effectively  treated  by paramedics  on  the  scene  and  released.

Our  maintenance  and  technical  people  have  started  the  cleanup.  Production  will  experience  a brief  delay  that  is  not  expected  to  impact  customer  delivery.  The  staff  is  working  overtime  to assure  that  all  mitigation  is  completed  swiftly.  

Strict  health  and  safety  COVID-19  protocols  will  remain  in  place.
