Fire Causes Severe Damage To London Business

A late night fire in London kept fire fighters working until early Saturday morning.

The London Fire Department says around 11 pm they got a call that the Sentinel Office Supply Store was on fire. Crew members say they arrived on the scene to find flames coming out of the building.

The captain of the fire department says the metal building made the fire worse by containing the heat and he says the supplies at this store only fueled the flames.

"When I say fuel load of course I mean, lots of paper and things of that nature. Of course they had copier sales as well and a bunch of copy machines burn up so you got a lot of plastic. It's kind of a mess," said Captain Tony Brown with the London Fire Department.

The store owner and others tried to salvage as much paperwork and electronics as they could.
