PUTNAM COUNTY, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — More than half a dozen volunteer fire departments and every tanker in Kanawha County responded Wednesday to a blaze at a business in the Rock Branch Industrial Park in Putnam County.
The fire at Central Van and Storage was reported about 5:15 p.m.
Becky West of the Poca Volunteer Fire Department said 35 workers were in the building when the fire broke out. All of the workers were able to get out safely and no injuries have been reported.
West said the building's owner said the sprinklers in the building did not activate properly.
Photos and video show smoke billowing from the business. The fire is putting off so much smoke that it is being picked up on satellite.
Eyewitness News has a crew headed to the scene. More information will be provided as details become available.
