A Waynedale business was heavily damaged in a fire early Wednesday morning.

The Fort Wayne Fire Department was called to Oetting Trucking, 3014 Broadripple Drive, around 1:40 a.m., a statement from the department said.

When crews arrived, they found the building engulfed in flames and the roof had collapsed, the statement said. Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to other buildings. Ladder trucks were used to put out most of the fire.

No one was hurt while fighting the fire, which took crews an hour to get under control, the statement said. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
