One injured in fire at E Ink HQ

From Wicked Local:

A laboratory fire at E Ink – a Cambridge company that makes the displays for Amazon’s Kindle and other e-book reader devices – sent one employee to the hospital and left the company with close to $350,000 in damages Friday afternoon.

On Friday at 11:54 a.m., fire crews responded to E Ink’s research and development facility at 733 Concord Ave. where a fire sparked and flashed inside a laboratory fume hood.

“A product the employee was working on ignited in the hood,” said Deputy Fire Chief John Gelinas. “There was no release of any exotic chemicals or products.”

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
