GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Two employees of a Garden City manufacturing plant that makes fiberglass tanks suffered smoke inhalation after a fire consumed much of the building.

The Garden City Telegram (http://bit.ly/RxlaEz) reports firefighters were called to Palmer Manufacturing just after 10 a.m. Monday. Fire Chief Allen Shelton says about 50 percent of the plant was on fire when crews arrived.

He says the two unnamed employees were reported in good condition after being taken to a local hospital.

Shelton says winds of 31 to 41 mph made the blaze difficult to contain. Investigators had not yet determined what caused the fire as of Monday afternoon. More than two dozen firefighters from Garden City and Holcomb responded to the scene.

No damage report was immediately available.
