A man was hospitalized Thursday with burns to his ear when a small fire broke out at a spa manufacturing plant in Anaheim.

More than 50 firefighters responded at 7:30 a.m. to the 1300 block of North Blue Gum Street, where investigators believe a chemical reaction set off an explosion that triggered the fire at the 30,000-square-foot plant.

By the time firefighters arrived at the L.A. Spas site, the sprinkler system had extinguished the fire and all employees had self-evacuated, said Maria Sabol, a spokeswoman for the Anaheim Fire Department.

Sabol said employees were being let back into the building. No estimate of the fire damage was immediately available.
