A reported dust fire sent employees of one Elkhart manufacturing facility out into the cold early Thursday. Firefighters were sent to Dexter Chassis, at 2501 Jeanwood Drive on Elkhart’s northeast side, just before 5 a.m. The city’s emergency dispatch center said workers had left the building because of the fire, and there were no reports of injuries. A WSBT-TV photojournalist at the scene said the fire was quickly controlled and employees were back inside the building. There was no additional information on the extent of the damage.
