JAMESVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - Fire officials are trying determined what caused a blaze that tore through a central New York pallet manufacturer company over the weekend.

Officials in Onondaga County say the fire was reported around 9:30 p.m. Saturday at the B&B; Lumber Pallet Co. in the hamlet of Jamesville, just east of Syracuse.

More than 30 volunteer fire departments in a three-county region responded to the blaze, which lasted into Sunday morning as firefighters continued to douse hot spots.

Emergency officials say tanker trucks had to haul water to the scene because of the lack of hydrants at the pallet company, which is located in a quarry.

Officials say the fire’s origin doesn’t’ appear to be suspicious but the investigation is continuing.

The company’s website says it’s one of the Northeast’s largest pallet manufacturers.
