Firefighters were called to the scene of factory fire on the 200 block of Valley Road at around 7:00 p.m. Sunday night.

When fire crews arrived, they noticed flames shooting from the roof of a building that houses Flexible Circuits, Inc.

Bucks County Radio confirms the fire originated from Flexible Circuits, a maker of circuit boards.

Hazmat crews were called to the scene due to materials in the building containing harmful chemicals that may surface within the smoke.

Residents near the area of Street and Valley Roads were told to stay indoors and keep their windows and doors closed as smoke filled the sky.

At 10:32 p.m., the fire was placed under control.

A firefighter reportedly suffered smoke inhalation.

No other injuries have been reported.
