The Glasgow Fire Department responded around 3:00 pm Thursday to a report of a fire at Alcan Composites.  Upon arrival firefighters found a large fire under a covered shed containing foam core, plastic pallets and old machinery, which was all lost to the fire.  The fire was contained in 10 minutes and firefighters were on the scene around 1hour and 30minutes.  The cause was determined to be a roll of foam core that had overheated and caught on fire and spread to other materials.  Plant personnel tried to put out the fire with portable extinguishers but were not successful.  There were no injuries reported.  There was no damage estimates given.
