A huge fire broke out at a local trailer repair shop Sunday night, causing tens of thousands of dollars in damage.

Just before 9:00pm, firefighters responded to reports of a blaze at the Better Built Trailers shop on 23 1/2 Road.

Crews were able to extinguish the flames within a matter of minutes, but not before the fire took its toll on the building. Officials estimate that the business suffered $50,000 in damages.

They say that a car and several propane tanks were inside the building when it broke out into flames, but fortunately no people.

Authorities say at this point they don't know what started the fire, and that the cause is under investigation.
