A fire sparked just after midnight Tuesday at the Graceland Fruit Production facility on Forrester Road in Benzie County.

Emergency responders arrived quickly. The company says the fire was contained to a section of one piece of equipment, impacting one of three fruit processing systems. The other two systems will continue to function as normal. 

One person was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. 

They are still trying to find what caused the fire. They hope to repair the damaged section of equipment and return it to service as soon as possible.
