NAMPA -- Some scary moments this morning at a Nampa publishing plant when a fire started inside a piece of equipment.

Several engines and nearly 30 firefighters responded to the scene just after 11 a.m.

The Nampa Fire Department tells us the fire at Pacific Press Publishing started in a metal tube where paper is recycled.

There was heavy smoke and the processing end of the building was evacuated.

Fortunately, the fire was contained to one area and no one was hurt. But it was a challenging and dangerous scene for firefighters.

Investigators are still looking into the exact cause of the fire.

There was no damage to the structure itself, just the recycling equipment.
