MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

A fire broke out Friday morning at a northeast Minneapolis concrete plant, near Marshall Street NE and Lowry Ave. NE.

The fire was reported at 7:25 a.m. at Marshall Concrete Products (2610 Marshall Street NE). Firefighters at the scene said some products on a conveyer belt caught fire. The official cause of the fire is under investigation.

Power was shut down and roads were closed in the area. The fire was under control shortly after 8 a.m. Damage was contained to the conveyer belt and the top of the 30-foot building.

One firefighter suffered a minor injury from a fall. They were taken by ambulance to Hennepin County Medical Center.

The concrete plant is adjacent to the Siwek Lumber yard, which had two destructive fires at the same location in 1984 and 1993. Firefighters took precautionary measures to protect adjacent buildings at the lumber yard.
