Parts of a Livingston County business are heavily damaged after a fire ripped through late Saturday night.

Flames were discovered at the Lakelands Concrete Facility on East Main Street in Lima around 9 p.m. 



Lima Fire Chief Tim Vandevelt, who came across the fire, says shortly after he spotted smoke coming from the building, the roof collapsed. Multiple fire companies helped haul in water in from nearby towns to help put out the flames.

President Todd Clarke commended firefighters for their work in a statement:

"We are planning on resuming production of our precast products as soon as possible, and there will be minimal disruption for our employees and our customers.  I want to commend the Lima Fire Department as well as the surrounding town Fire Departments that responded to the request for assistance.  They did an outstanding job of keeping the fire contained to the detached structure and preserving our main production facility."

It's still unclear what sparked the flames.
