LOMIRA, WI (WTAQ) - The Quad/Graphics printing plant in Lomira is getting back to work Thursday afternoon, after a late morning fire that was quickly put out. 

Early reports said there was an explosion and fire which started in a paper storage room on the east side of the two million square foot plant, that stretches along Highway 41 about 10 miles south of Fond du Lac. 

Quad spokeswoman Claire Ho said firefighters were called, but employees and the building's sprinkler system had the flames out quickly. 

Ho said early Thursday afternoon that the building was open again -- and as soon as the water was cleaned up, operations would resume. 

No injuries were reported, and officials said all the employees were accounted for. 

Quad/Graphics is one of the nation's largest printers, and the Lomira plant is the largest printing facility in Wisconsin.
