---- — Norwich firefighters succeeded in knocking down a small fire that broke out about 10 a.m. Monday in the corporate office building of the Chobani yogurt company at 147 New York Route 320 in the town of Norwich.

The fire ignited as the result of demolition workers using cutting torches and other tools to remove pipes, said Chenango County Fire Coordinator Matthew Beckwith.

No injuries resulted, and the fire was extinguished in about a half hour.

Assisting the Norwich Fire Department was the Sherburne Fire Department. The North Norwich Department was on standby, Beckwith said.
