"It [was] a massive operation," said Anthony Turner, a volunteer with the department. "Lots of hoses, long distances, partially because of the size of the building. It is a really large building."

Six fire departments and 30 fire vehicles worked for hours to fight the blaze.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
