Firefighters Respond to Small Furnace Explosion at Manufacturing Business in Wilsonville

At 4:00pm today firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue were dispatched to a possible commercial fire in the 10000 block of SW Commerce Circle in Wilsonville, a local business specializing in Die Casting and Metal Injection Molding. Employees at the facility reported a small explosion in a hydrogen operated furnace, used in their manufacturing process.

Firefighters from the South Wilsonville fire station arrived within minutes of dispatch to find smoke inside the facility. Firefighter worked quickly to determine that all employees had safely evacuated, and confirmed the fire was contained to the furnace itself, with no extension into the roof structure.

As a result of the explosion a piece of ventilation pipe for the furnace was blown from the roof area, and landed near an adjacent business. There was no damage to the adjacent business.

There were no injuries reported, and a damage estimate is not available at this time. A TVFR fire investigator was called to the scene to help determine the cause of the explosion.
