Gainesville firefighters quickly extinguished a small fire Thursday in a portion of the roof at a large manufacturing facility on Old Oakwood Road. There were no injuries.

The 5:30 p.m. fire at Indalex Aluminum Solutions at 2905 Old Oakwood Road prompted the evacuation of about 50 employees.

Flames and smoke were visible from a northwest corner of the building when firefighters arrived.

A ladder truck was used to reach the area, and firefighters attacked the blaze from the inside, quickly bringing it under control.

Gainesville Fire Chief Jon Canada said the fire resulted in minor damage.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
