For the second time in a week, a fire broke out at an East Alton factory.
The second blaze at Olin Brass started around midday Thursday and required firefighters from the company's fire department and several local fire departments to extinguish.
The fire was located near the rear of the Olin complex and no employees were in the area when it started. No injuries were reported.
On Tuesday two people were sent to the hospital with injuries suffered in a fire at the factory that started with an explosion. That blaze is still under investigation.
