SPARTA, Mich. (WZZM) -- Firefighters have responded to flames at a Sparta business.
The flames at Cascade Die Casting Group, Inc., 9983 Sparta Ave., were reported around 4pm Thursday, when a dust collector caught fire and workers evacuated.
Multiple fire departments were dispatched to the scene, but by about 4:15pm some were called off as firefighters already on the scene made progress against the flames.
Authorities closed Sparta Ave. north of M-37 while fighting the fire. By 4:30pm, the northbound side of the road was open again. At that point, firefighters said the fire was out and they were checking for hot spots. Workers also returned to their jobs. Sparta Ave. is entirely open again at this point.
