The fire started around 12:30 p.m. at Black Creek Hardwoods in Grabill, which is owned by the Lengacher family.

It took 9 different fire departments to fight the fire. But the shortage of water became an issue causing, fire trucks to make water runs to fire hydrants within Grabill.

When Indiana's NewsCenter arrived on the scene, the original 300 by 50-foot building was being cut in half by the flames.

As of now the fire is still smoldering and took a little over an hour to bring under control. Luckily there were no injuries reported.
