Firefighters from several communities and the Dayton Haz-Mat Team were called out at 3:00 a.m. Monday morning to a fire at Lipo Technologies, 800 Scholz Drive.

Investigators said fire broke out in a lab, and workers tried to put it out with fire extinguishers.  The fire activated the sprinkler system in the building, which created a two-foot build-up of water.  The fire was contained to the lab, but firefighters called the haz-mat team because of runoff and chemical concerns.

Crews said there are no environmental concerns associated with the fire.
