Charlotte, N.C.
-- A three-alarm fire at a manufacturing plant in Charlotte, NC kept firefighters busy for hours early Wednesday morning.

The fire started shortly after midnight at the Genpak plant located at 1001 Westinghouse Boulevard in southwest Charlotte.

Firefighters needed about and hour and a half to control the flames, but stayed at the plant longer to watch for hot spots.

Investigators say a styro-foam product caught fire and is similar to an accident at the same plant in December of last year. Plant officials say product damage could be more than a million dollars

Investigators issued a citation to Genpak, and will meet with company officials next week to make sure that similar situation does not happen again

No injuries were reported.
