MADILL, Okla. (KXII) -- Employees at Big Tex Trailers returned to work Thursday after a fire Wednesday afternoon forced workers to evacuate.

The fire marshal was also on site investigating the cause of the blaze. The report said the fire began in the ovens where they bake the powder-coated trailers.

The fire broke out around 3:30 p.m.

No one was hurt, but more than 300 employees were evacuated and police say there was extensive damage inside.

Six local fire departments had the fire under control in under an hour.
