Firefighters from Waterloo, Valley and Omaha all responded to a fire inside a seed manufacturing plant in Waterloo early Friday morning.

Just after midnight, crews found smoke billowing from a back door at Syngenta Seed Research, but couldn't find the fire itself for almost an hour. Investigators say the flames ignited inside a faulty seed drying oven.

The fire was quickly extinguished. No one was injured.
