Six fire trucks and 32 personnel responded to the large fire and were not cleared from the scene until nearly 3 a.m., the release said.

Although the fire activated multiple smoke detectors, it was not large enough to activate the buildings' fire suppression system, so crews had to work for several hours to extinguish the fire and ventilate significant smoke from the warehouse, according to the release.

The fire appears to have originated in a work area on a bench, but the cause remains under investigation.

No injuries were reported.
