Mutual aid companies were called in from several departments to assist with overhaul and checking for extension. The fire was placed under control by chief of department Kevin Murray at 5:57 AM. After crews were done with all overhaul, the scene was turned over to the town fire marshal for further investigation. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is unknown to this point.
