An explosion and fire occurred Saturday night Neapco Components. The Beatrice Fire Department responded to the Neapco Components Building located in the Beatrice Industrial Park late Saturday evening. Fire officials believe a radiator failure caused the explosion of an industrial air compressor in the northwest corner of the building. Firefighters reported the sprinkler system contained the fire to that area.
Neapco produces driveshaft components for automobiles. The company was the first to locate to Industrial Park in 1982.
