Multiple fire departments respond to hazardous materials incident in Henrietta Sunday morning.

The Henrietta Fire District responded first to a call set off by an automatic alarm system of a high tech manufacturing plant on Park Centre Drive just after 6:30 Sunday morning.

Firefighters located the fire in the manufacturing building of the Orafol Corporation, a local tool-and-die manufacturer. They found the fire to be near an 800-gallon container of a caustic cleaning solution of sodium hydroxide. Firefighters then issued a Level-1 Hazardous Material alert that activated a full response from the Monroe County Fire Bureau Haz-Mat team.

The building's fire sprinkler system contained the fire but did not extinguish it. Fire crews successfully put out the fire with extinguishers and hose lines.

Fire departments from Gates, Chili, Pittsford, Scottsville, East Avon and Honeoye Falls also responded, providing mutual aid. Deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office blocked access roads and diverted traffic away from Park Center Drive.

Jared Guhl, Henrietta Fire District public information officer, said that the public and the environment were in no danger from either the fire or the chemicals involved.

The Henrietta Fire District and county hazmat crews remained on site to monitor air and water quality and assist Orafol plant officials in recovering contaminated water from the building.
