BHP Steel today reported a fire in its coated paint line at the Chullora Service Centre.

No personnel were injured as a result of the fire, which was brought under control by the New South Wales Fire and Rescue Service within 15 minutes.

All emergency procedures were followed and the paintline building was evacuated while the fire was extinguished.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway and it is not yet clear what the impact on paintline production will be.

All remaining slitting and shearing operations are unaffected.
