Fire Causes $100,000 in Damage at Rocknell Fastener

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A mechanical malfunction causes $100,000 in damage at a local factory. The blaze started around 1pm Saturday at Rocknell Fastener, which is on 11th Street just south of Samuelson.

Crews say a bank of air compressors in Plant 2 caught on fire. The sprinkler system went off and put the flames out.

About a dozen people were working at the time. They all got out okay and were sent home for the day.
