A large metal shop suffered major damage in an early-morning fire today on the outskirts of Woodland.
Fire companies were dispatched to 16604 County Road 98B at about 3:30 a.m. today. When firefighters first arrived on scene, the metal shop was ablaze. Fire did not spread to a nearby unoccupied residence.
Crews attacked one side of the building, first deploying 1,500 feet of fire hose to the nearest hydrant. Two water tenders were also called in to spray water on the other side of the metal shop.
In about an hour, the fire was brought under control, according to a press release from the Woodland Fire Department.
The cause and dollar loss sustained have not been determined.
