ENFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

Firefighters continued to watch for flareups at a foundry in Enfield Wednesday morning.

A fire at the Yankee Casting Company building on Shaker road rekindled for the second time on Tuesday night.

Firefighters said they had to rush back to the scene to get the fire under control.

No one was hurt in either flareup.

The first fire began on Tuesday morning.

Firefighters quickly doused the flames and said it appeared to be under control.

However, a hot spot sparked it again around 8:45 p.m.

Mutual aid had to be called in from Tolland, Somers and Ellington to help Enfield crews battle the intense flames.

They said hydrants were not providing enough water, which further complicated the effort.

It's unclear what sparked either fire.

"There was a hole in the roof," said Mark Zarcaro, Enfield Fire Department. "There could have been embers up there. There was a lot of air there. That roof was built in the 60s and it's pretty dried out."

Firefighters told Eyewitness News that they believe part of the building will need to be demolished.

It's unclear when the business will be able to reopen.
