Investigators are working to figure out what started a fire at a lumber company in Butler County Monday morning.

It happened around 3 a.m. at the Greene Lumber Co. on E. Traer Street in Greene.

Fire crews told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier they arrived to find the main building engulfed in flames.

The heat was so intense that it melted siding and cracked windows of a home across the street, the Courier reported.

No one was hurt.
