On Tuesday, April 2nd the Madison Fire Department responded to Vehicle Services Group (VSG) for the initial report of a water flow alarm in the rear of Plant 1 for a fire in part of the air filtration system. 

At approximately 5:38pm on Friday April 5th MFD units responded to a water flow alarm at 2700 Lanier Drive (VSG) Plant #2.

Upon arrival MFD units found dark smoke coming from the Northeast corner of the building. It was quickly determined that a paint booth and other equipment were involved.
