Several fire departments have responded, but now are leaving the scene.

UPDATE 9:50 p.m.

Firefighters are clearing the scene of a small blaze that broke out at ACS Industries on Mogadore Road at about 8 p.m. Monday.

Firefighters from several area communities responded to the reported fire, which started in a painting area in the rear of the facility's manufacturing plant.

An employee at ACS told Kent Patch no one was injured in the blaze and the workers on second shift were able to quickly evacuate the factory, which produces large machine implements used in the construction trade.

He said no one was injured in the fire, which was contained to a small area of the building.

Mogadore Road has reopened after being closed at the intersection of S.R. 261.

Firefighters from multiple area departments, including Stow, Brimfield, Ravenna and Streetsboro, all responded.

Don, It makes me proud of our undermaned profesional fire department. They are highly trained, well equiped, dedicated and have outstanding response times. Most people do not realize the Kent Fire Department/Paramedic service responds to approx. 4000 calls per year.
