The fire was quickly extinguished, but not before the man was badly burned.
Paramedics loaded the man into an ambulance. He was taken to Meadville airport and transferred to a medical helicopter for transport to a burn unit.
Security officers at the plant said information about the cause of the fire and the extent of the man's injuries will be released by the company at a later time.
Fire personnel said the fire was located inside the production area of the LORD facility.
