OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A fire at an Ogden dog food plant is estimated to have caused $300,000 in damage.

The Deseret News reports ( ) that about 200 employees were evacuated from American Nutrition after the blaze broke out Tuesday.

Ogden Fire Deputy Chief Eric Bauman says no injuries were reported but officials say the fire damaged an "odor scrubber system" on the exterior of the facility. The device is designed to reduce smells coming from the plant as a result of the food production there.

The cause of the fire has not been determined but Bauman says it is not being considered suspicious.
