CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

Dozens of firefighters were called to a glass manufacturing plant in Cumberland County Tuesday morning after one of the plant's furnaces was leaking molten glass.

It happened around 3 a.m. at PPG Industries in South Middleton Township. PPG officials said there was never a fire and the leak was handled internally. They said firefighters were called to the scene to assist.

The call initially came into Cumberland County dispatchers as a 2-alarm fire in the basement of the facility. No evacuations were needed, company officials said.

No one was injured and PPG officials said there was no major damage to the plant.

PPG Industries has been at that location on Park Drive since 1972.
