The Milwaukee Fire Department Hazardous Materials Response Team was called to a Glendale machine fire in Glendale on Thursday evening.

The fire occurred at Strattec Security Corporation, which manufactures automotive locks and keys.

Due to the nature of the machine fire, North Shore/Fire could not use water to extinguish and were forced to utilize alternative methods from the Milwaukee Fire Department Hazardous Materials Response Team.

Fire crews were able to extinguish the fire and employees were allowed to turn to work.

No one was hurt but there is an estimated $80,000 in damage to the machinery.
