Authorities have released the name of a firefighter that was injured in a fire at a factory on Bill Bryan Boulevard in Hopkinsville Thursday morning.
Hopkinsville Fire Department Spokesman Payton Rogers says they were called to Metalsa for a fire alarm and located a fire contained to a hot wax system.
Hopkinsville Firefighter Christopher Marlar reportedly suffered first and second-degree burns to his arm and wrist when the hot wax got under his gear. He was transported by Hopkinsville EMS to Jennie Stuart Health where he was treated and released.
Firefighters were called back to the same area of the factory a few hours later after the fire rekindled. Production at the facility was temporarily stopped twice.
