No injuries reported when fire rips through Durham cabinet business

— No injuries were reported Friday morning when fire did heavy damage to a custom cabinet shop in Durham.

Fire crews were called to Garland Woodcraft Company at about 9 a.m.

More than 40 firefighters responded, and it took them about 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.

The fire started in a room where chemicals and varnishes are kept, officials said.

Employees arrived at the business at about 6 a.m. Friday.

Some nearby portions of the building sustained smoke and water damage, but fire officials were still assessing damage late Friday morning.

It’s unclear how the fire started.
