(REDDINGTON) - Firefighters from three volunteer departments were called to fight a structure fire at a business Saturday afternoon in Reddington.

No one was inside the building at the time the fire was reported at 2:32 p.m. on Saturday at Integrity Manufacturing Inc. at 10350 N. U.S. 31. The company employs six people and operates a plastic injection and machining business to supply Henry Schwein, a dental equipment company.

More than 30 firefighters from Redding, Hamilton and Jackson-Washington volunteer fire departments responded to the fire. The Jackson County Sheriff's Department also assisted at the scene.

Redding Township Volunteer Fire Department Chief Seth Thompson said the cause of the fire that took firefighters around six hours to get under control is unknown. He believes it could be electrical in nature, but can't say for sure.

The fire, which destroyed the building, started behind the office portion of the building.

Thompson said the building contained plastics, oil, hydraulic fluid, heavy machinery and other materials that burned. He said there were no environmental concerns because everything burned off and was contained to the building.
