Flying Colors Imprinting in Melvindale, Michigan, was recently destroyed by a fire, which began at about 12:30 a.m. on March 31.
According to the Dearborn Times-Herald, wind gusts early that morning made firefighting more difficult as crews sought to contain a fire that was fully engaged. By the time firefighters arrived, the fire was through the roof, and due to the chemicals used at the print shop, nearby residents were urged to shelter in place.
Deputy Fire Chief Steve Densmore told WWJ-AM 950 News Radio that a hazmat team was on the scene to monitor the air. Densmore added that firefighters fought the blaze defensively since the building was fully involved when they arrived, and the roof was collapsing to the floor.
By 7 a.m., the fire was extinguished, with the building a total loss. No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire has not been released.
According to the print shop’s website, it specializes in decorated drinkware, contract screen printing and embroidery, and fulfillment.
