When crews arrived, Serbic says one-quarter of the roughly 20,000 square-foot hardware store was engulfed in flames. After making sure everyone was out of the building, crews starting battling the blaze, he says.
“It’s an open-area type of building, so there’s a lot of product in there and the fire moved very quickly,” he explains.
