BELLE, W.Va. -- Some chemicals reacted with each other and caught fire at a Kanawha County plastics plant on Tuesday morning. No one was injured.

The small fire started at the Kureha Corp. plant in Belle at about 5 a.m. Employees put the blaze out with two fire extinguishers, said plant manager Talmadge Hager.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Plant officials hope to determine which chemicals reacted, Hager said.
