Firefighters battled a large fire that broke out at an Akron pallet company early Friday morning.
Crews responded to the fire at Tri County Pallet and Mulch on Flora Avenue near West Wilbeth Road around 5 a.m.
Around 9 a.m., Akron Fire Captain Al Bragg said the fire was under control and crews were working to put out hot spots throughout the area.
"There were six or seven tractor-trailers inside that were burning; as well as some tow motors, a few explosions in there," said Bragg. "A pretty substantial fire."
Bragg says size of the building is comparable to the size of a football field.
No injuries have been reported.
Fire crews were able to clear the scene at around 2:30 Friday afternoon.
It appears the building is not a total loss, according to Bragg. But the damage estimate so far totals more than $650,000
"I was told that they were able to save a substantial portion of the business. So, right now, it looks like there has been some of the business saved."
Fire investigators say sparks from a band saw could have ignited the fire.
Bragg says crews had to shutdown a portion of the railroad near the fire for several hours.
