Fire damages Carmel building


Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a Thursday fire in a Carmel commercial building.

Firefighters were called to 510 Third Ave. SW early Thursday evening. Smoke was reported coming from the structure, which formerly housed Woods Wire. A fire department spokesman said only a portion of the building was currently being used. He didn't know if any employees of a battery business were inside when the fire was reported.

The cause and origin of the blaze is under investigation. Thunderstorms were moving through the area at the time of the alarm.

A damage estimate has not been released.
