Workers evacuated a snack factory Thursday night in northern France when an electrical fire broke out, local media report.
The fire erupted shortly before 11 p.m. at the Ferrero branded chocolate and confectionery products plant in Villers-Ecalles. Authorities believe the fire originated in a condenser behind a low voltage electrical panel, Le Courrier Cauchois reports.
Of the 100 workers who evacuated the facility, only one reported an injury with burns to one hand. That worker was transported to a hospital in nearby Rouen for treatment.
Using two handlines, firefighters were able to gain control of the blaze within two hours.
