Lexington firefighters put out a fire at the JIF plant on Winchester Road Monday morning.

Fire crews were called to the plant around 11:30 a.m. after a piece of machinery that roasts peanuts called a 'hopper' caught fire. Fire officials say one person was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. Firefighters say it helped that the company had fire preventative measures in place, such as a system that triggers sprinklers to come on in case of a fire.
