Elkhart County wood business catches fire

MIDDLEBURY, Ind. -- Flames struck an Elkhart County wood business overnight on Friday morning.

It happened around 1:30 a.m. at Indiana Wood Products Inc. located on the 58000 block of County Road 43 in Middlebury.

Fire crews say the fire was contained to a small area of the work site thanks to the building's sprinkler system.

"If they wouldn't have had a sprinkling system I believe this building would've burned down," said Middlebury Fire Chief Jeff Wogoman. "That's what I believe saved the building."

There were no injuries reported.

Firefighters haven't determined the cause yet.
