There were no injuries after a reported fire at the Panda Environment Plant in Ayr.

Deputy Fire Chief Mark Smuck with the North Dumfries Fire Department says the blaze broke out Friday afternoon around 3 p.m. 

"We had a report of a fire in the building in an evaporator tank. We arrived on scene and evacuations were in place, first crews went in and knocked the fire down immediately. We have since cleared the scene, and its safe now inside."

They believe the fire started in a blower system that overheated.

There's no current damage estimate available, and the investigation continues.
