CHESTERFIELD (WWJ) – The roof caved in but no one was injured, authorities say, when a destructive fire broke out at an industrial building in Macomb County.

Fire officials told WWJ Newsradio 950 the blaze is out at Authority Flame Hardening & Straightening, a metal fabrication shop, on Leona off Gratiot Ave. in Chesterfield Township. Fire crews were able to save part of the building, officials said, and the scene was cleared by around 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Officials say the fire started in the shipping area of the business, and crews were able to keep the flames contained to that side of the facility. The roof cave-in affected about a quarter of the building.

No one was inside the business at the time.

Fire investigators are looking into the case of the fire.
