A fire erupted at the Frito-Lay plant at John Young Parkway and Silver Star Road early Saturday afternoon, prompting about 40 employees to evacuate the building.

The fire began in the waste-treatment area, where one employee worked, said Orlando Assistant Fire Chief Skip Kerkhof.

Employees evacuated the building after an alarm sounded.

More than a dozen trucks responded after firefighters learned that a forklift powered by propane gas might be nearby.

Firefighters quickly put out the fire.
