The Calhoun Fire Department says its crews were called out just after 2 p.m. They confirm that one of the machines inside the building started the blaze.

All nearby buildings were evacuated, including nearby Tom B. David Airport, because of propane tanks in the building. At least one of the tanks exploded. No injuries were reported.
