ZEELAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- Firefighters say a roofer's torch caused a fire in the roof of a building at the Mead Johnson Nutrition facility in Zeeland.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. Friday at the plant on Main Street.

Investigators say a group of workers was making repairs to the top of the building when one person's torch caught roofing materials on fire.

Workers in the affected building at the Mead Johnson Nutrition facility were evacuated for a short time, but were back at their jobs by afternoon.

There is no estimate yet on the extent of the fire damage.
