First arriving companies found heavy smoke showing from the fine furniture workshop located in the bottom of the two story building. Upon further investigation it was determined that the fire was contained to the dust collection unit. Crews quickly extinguished the fire, checked for fire extension into other areas of the building and used positive pressure ventilation to remove the heavy smoke layer from the business. There were no injuries to report.
