We're learning more about a fire that burned part of a Winchester plant.

Firefighters say a driver on I-64 saw the fire around 10:20 Friday night and called 911.

Crews arrived to find heavy fire behind the Hancor building.

Investigators say an estimated 75 pallets with plastic drain tile were burning along with heat exchangers on the roof of the building.

Firefighters say Hancor makes plastic drain tile used in septic systems.

Clark County called in extra help from the Winchester and Lexington Fire Departments to put out the flames.

It took the departments about an hour to get the fire under control.

Investigators believe the fire started outside the building, but they're not sure where.

They say a couple pieces of machinery could be the origin.

There was some smoke damage inside the building and insulation burned in a small building addition.

No one was hurt.

Investigators told ABC 36 News they thought the plant may be able to resume operations within a few hours.
