DECATUR — No one was hurt in a fire on the Archer Daniels Midland campus in Decatur on Tuesday morning, the company said.

ADM spokeswoman Jackie Anderson said in an email the fire began around 8 a.m. at the company's BioProducts facility, 2550 N. Brush College Rd.

The fire was in an area where maintenance work was being completed, she said. 

"We evacuated the facility as a precaution and called the local fire department for assistance," she said in an email. 

The facility was back in operation by 9 a.m., Anderson said. 

A representative for the Decatur Fire Department confirmed that firefighters were still at the scene at 9 a.m. but could not immediately provide more information.
