No one was injured, but a few roads near the Linde Gas Company in Hammond were blocked off for a time as a precaution after a fire Wednesday afternoon. Hammond Fire Chief Jeff Smith says they were called out around 2:30, and spent about three-hours at the scene. Chief Smith says there was a flame coming off an acetylene tank at the point where it gets filled, and that it was contained to that one tank, saying they only got involved after a garbage can in close proximity to the tank caught fire. Chief Smith says there was no damage to the building and at last check, no cause for what started the incident. An investigation is being conducted by the company.
