WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Anchor Glass Container in Warner Robins caught fire on Thursday afternoon.

According to Warner Robins Fire Chief Ross Moulton, an oil line on a piece of machinery ruptured and caused a flash fire.

Moulton explained that the building has a natural ventilation system with large chimneys. Those chimneys caught fire after the line ruptured.

Fire crews responded to the fire at 3:07 p.m. and the flames were put out between 3:30 and 3:45 p.m., according to Moulton.

No one was injured.

He said that the cause of Thursday's fire is similar to what caused the same building's fire on Oct. 2015.
