FOREST GROVE -- A three-alarm fire hit a Forest Grove business early Tuesday morning.

The 4 a.m. fire at 2331 23rd Ave., damaged the interior of Oregon Holiday Products, which makes holiday pine cone ornaments, according to Forest Grove Fire & Rescue.

Arriving firefighters saw light smoke coming from the windows of an office area. Reports of an adjacent RV with a tenant prompted a second alarm, though the information proved false.

After entering the building, thick smoke prompted a third alarm.

Firefighters removed many bags of pine cones from inside the building. The business creates ornaments by applying a cinnamon scent before packaging.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
