Mary Alice Reporting –

Crews remained on scene for about 8 hours for a blaze at a timber company.

The Sunday call came in at 4:23pm noting a structure fire at 5508 Hilltop Drive NW, in Strasburg, which is the location of United Hardwoods/ Sugarcreek Shavings.

Black smoke was observed in the area.

Tankers from surrounding fire departments were called in and law enforcement were asked to close the roadway down, including Cherry Run Rd and Winfield Strasburg Road, due to the number of vehicles and the need to allow responding units to get to the scene.

The Strasburg fire department noted that by 8pm the majority of the fire was out.

No cause has been listed but they added the fire is believed to have a started in a different location than a blaze reported on Saturday.

The investigation will continue.
