Several Hamburg area fire companies have been on the scene of a large mutual aid fire at a pallet warehouse on Lake Ave. in Hamburg.
The fire was first reported after 3 am, and crews remain on the scene hours later at the Queen City South Business Park
When first fire fighters got to the scene, flames were reaching into the sky, apparently fed by wooden pallets manufactured in the building. At the height of the fire, explosions were heard in the burning warehouse and fire fighters - for a time- were pulled back.
Demolition crews were are being called in, an indication the building is being declared a total loss.
No injuries have been reported
Lake Avenue was closed for several hours but traffic resumed by 6 am
