The first firefighters responded to the blaze at Stone Creek Cabinetry and Millworks at 6:29 p.m. Fire crews found the two main shop buildings which are metal with heavy smoke and flames coming out of them. Heavy smoke could also be seen coming out of the front building which is where the offices were located.

Due to the nature of the business and how heavily involved the fire was, a large fire response was required. A total of six engines, three ladder trucks, one squad truck, two med units, three command vehicles, a medical supervisor, a hazmat team and an air and light truck were all deployed to the scene. Approximately 34 firefighters worked on the fire.

As of 8 p.m. Thursday evening, fire crews were still on the scene knocking out hot spots.

The fire investigator was on the way to the scene to determine the cause of the fire.

The business was closed for the day when the fire broke out so no one was at the business.

No injuries to civilians or fire personnel were reported.
