The fire gutted the company's large manufacturing facility and video from the scene showed part of the roof starting to collapse as flames burned through from below.

Deputy Fire Marshal John Stroebel said the fire was first reported shortly after 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. Firefighters said they were forced to call for more help before even getting to the scene due to the size of the fire. It had been reported in numerous 911 calls.

Fire investigators have yet to determine what caused the fire.
