MILLVILLE, N.J. — Officials say firefighters responded to a tank breach at a New Jersey glass manufacturing plant in Millville over the weekend.

Millville Fire Chief Michael Lippincott says no one was injured in the tank breach Sunday evening. NJ.com reports a breach means that a break in the tank caused molten glass to escape into the surrounding area.

Two fire alarms sounded for the rupture just before and just after 5 p.m. Sunday. Lippincott says his fire company is experienced in handling molten glass tank breaches.
