CARTER LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Investigators are trying to determine what caused a fire that destroyed a manufacturing plant in western Iowa.

The fire started around 9 p.m. Saturday inside the General Manufacturing plant in Carter Lake.

Firefighters from Carter Lake, Omaha and Council Bluffs worked for several hours Saturday night to extinguish the blaze. No injuries were reported.

The Fisher family has owned the business that made bar stools and stacked chairs for more than 50 years.

Arlene Fisher says the family plans to rebuild the plant. Twelve people were employed there.
