South Bend, Ind. A factory fire in South Bend that apparently began while employees were cleaning a piece of machinery slightly injured two workers at the plant.

The two employees were taken Thursday from Royal Adhesives & Sealants to a local hospital where they were treated for slight burns and smoke inhalation.

South Bend Fire Marshal Federico Rodriguez says investigators believe the fire began while employees were cleaning a machine on the processing plant's second floor.

The plant's sprinkler heads activated during the fire and helped contain the blaze until firefighters could extinguish it.
