UPDATE: Fire crews in York County were back at the Donsco foundry today, one day after a massive fire destroyed parts of it.


Firefighters and emergency crews responding to a third alarm fire in Wrightsville Borough, York County have the blaze under control.

According to the Wrightsville Fire and Rescue Company 41, an employee was missing during the fire but was located by a fireman.

The employee was removed via ground ladder and is safe, according to the fire department.

The first started around 10:40 am at 124 N. Front Street at the Donsco foundry.

No injuries have been reported.

Donsco says no shift workers are to report today except for maintenance.

At last check the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

“I think right now it’s just going to be assessing the damage, going in and getting any additional equipment that they need to contain the cleanup because obviously there’s a lot of water in there,” said Phil Smith, Eastern York County Emergency Management Coordinator. “I think knowing Donsco they train their employees well and I think this showed that training and they all got out and they all knew where to go.”

Donsco makes things like gear boxes and transmission housings. The company dates back to 1906.

This is a developing story. CBS21 News will provide more details as new information becomes available.
