CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Three contractors at the Quaker Oats plant in Cedar Rapids were hospitalized for smoke inhalation after a fire.

Firefighters were called to the plant in the 400 block of 2nd Street NE around 9:30 Monday night after sprinklers were activated on the fifth floor of the flour mill building.

The sprinklers put out the fire, which firefighters say appeared to start in a dust collector.

The three workers injuries are not considered life threatening.
