A state police fire marshal has been called in to determine the cause of a fire that broke out early today at a Corry business.

Corry Fire Chief Dan Flick said the cause of the fire at McCray Aluminum, 509 W. Smith St., is under investigation.

Corry Fire Department responded to the single-story masonry structure at 1:58 a.m. When firefighters arrived, they saw smoke and found fire in the back of an office.

“When we arrived on scene, the fire had broken out of the office and was extending into the shop area and roof,” Flick said.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the office area and prevent it from spreading further into the shop.

The building was vacant at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported.

After extinguishing the fire, firefighters ventilated the building.

Corry Fire Department was assisted by Elgin-Beaverdam Hose Co., Columbus Volunteer Fire Department, Union City Volunteer Fire Department and EmergyCare for an ambulance.

Firefighters were back in service at 4:37 a.m.
