April 22nd, 2013 - 5:28am

(Carlsborg) -- A fire Saturday afternoon badly damaged a business in Carlsborg.

When crews arrived, they found the Richert's Marble and Granite building fully involved in flames.

Large amounts of fire was coming from the roof and above the doors of the north side of the building. The fire was reported by a person passing the business.

The business was closed and not occupied at the time of the fire. The fire was contained to the northern portion but the remainder of the building suffered from heat, water and smoke damage. The roof above the northern section partially collapsed.

No one was hurt. The business reportedly has insurance, but a cause of the fire is still under investigation. A damage estimate is still being tallied, but one piece of equipment lost in the fire cost a quarter million dollars.
