Firefighters from several area agencies responded to a fire at Chicago Bridge and Iron in Plainfield on Friday just before noon.

Police on the scene said that there was one person suffering from asthma-related issues but there were no deaths or serious injury from the fire. The building where the fire was located was administrative, not industrial.

Firefighters put the fire out at 1:40 and they remained on the scene checking for hot spots and ventilating smoke from the building.
