Thanks to a fire sprinkler, a fire at a Fort Collins business park was contained and did not spread yesterday morning. Poudre Fire Authority Firefighters responded to a report of smoke coming off the roof and a fire alarm sounding at at Berken Energy, In the Prospect East Business Park at 2400 Midpoint Drive.

The Hazardous Materials Team also responded because there was a report of chemicals involved. The Team determined there was no potential for the chemicals to spread outside the building and there was not any threat to the public.

PFA investigators determined that the origin of the fire was in a lab room and the cause was accidental. An investigation is continuing.
