Rentech Nitrogen Partners, L.P. (NYSE: RNF) confirmed that a brief fire occurred in and was isolated to the ammonia synthesis loop of the ammonia plant at its East Dubuque, IL nitrogen fertilizer facility at approximately 9 a.m. CST this morning, and was extinguished by plant personnel and the Menominee-Dunleith Fire Department. The Partnership confirmed there were no injuries or chemical releases, nor is there any threat or hazard posed to the community.

The plant was shut down in an orderly fashion in response to the fire. An investigation into the cause of the incident is underway. At this time the facility is anticipated to be off-line for several weeks while damages are assessed and repairs are completed. The facility is expected to resume shipments of product held in inventory within the next few days.
