UPPER MERION, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Firefighters and hazmat crews were called to a fire at a chemical plant in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County.

The fire started around 4 a.m. Wednesday at the Coopers Creek Chemical Corporation plant on the 800 block of River Road.

Officials say the fire was located in a tank on the property.

The Action Cam on the scene showed smoke coming from the building.

A second alarm was struck around 5:15 a.m. It was placed under control by 6:30 a.m.
