MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the cause of a large fire that destroyed parts of the Varner Woodwork cabinet company in Montgomery.

Montgomery Fire District Chief Jon King said it took firefighters 30 to 45 minutes to get the three-alarm blaze under control. The blaze began shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday, and units remained on the scene Thursday evening extinguishing smoldering flames.

King tells The Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/1tJIf3C) that employees were outside the building when units arrived, and the owner had accounted for everyone. District Chief Mark Williams said there were no injuries to civilians or firefighters.

Williams said the fire started in the wood shop behind the business. He said wood materials and chemical products such as varnish and paint used to make cabinets contributed to the size of the fire.
