Dover, Ohio (WJER) - Firefighters from several area departments were called out to Dover Chemical early Tuesday morning when a mechanical failure caused a hot oil pump to catch fire.  

Dover Fire Lt. Joe Minocchi says damage was limited to the pump and a small portion of surrounding equipment. He says the sprinkler system kept the fire from spreading. He says firefighters used water and foam to complete the extinguishment, preventing any environmental impact.

Monocchi says there were no injuries, and no evacuations were necessary. 

Firefighters stayed on scene until about 3 am. New Philadelphia, Sugarcreek, Strasburg, Bolivar, Wayne Township, Mineral City and Uhrichsville firefighters also responded.
