CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico -- A maquiladora caught fire in southern Juarez Saturday afternoon, sending a plume of thick smoke into the sky that could be seen for miles and leading to the evacuation of hundreds of factory workers and nearby residents amid an hours-long firefight by crews to get the blaze knocked down.

The Mexican news outlet El Diario reported an explosion was heard about 1 p.m. and moments later large flames could be seen spreading in a warehouse of the BRP maquiladora, located on Santiago Troncoso Avenue and Independencia Boulevard.

The factory makes all-terrain vehicles and the company indicated much of the damage came from ATVs that were engulfed in flames and burned in the blaze. No damage estimate was immediately available, but at least one report suggested it totaled into the millions of dollars.
