Fire Chief Bob Crawford says crews were called to a building on Hart Place around 9:30 this morning with reports of thick black smoke billowing into the air.

“Fire fighters did a great job of getting things contained in a hurry, getting the fire knocked down,” Crawford says.

The building is home to QPS Mechanical and Dave Polowick Design.

There’s no word yet on what sparked the blaze.
