The fire required a second alarm due to the scale; In total, seven engines and 21 firefighters responded to the fire.

Five Cities Fire Authority Chief Steve Lieberman said that there were no injuries and that they were able to contain the fire to the one structure.

Fire Chief Lieberman and the owner of the business are friends and were both members of the 'Grover City Volunteer Fire Department' years ago.

"It's a tough time for all of us right now," said Fire Chief Lieberman. "And things like this just make it that much harder as we look towards, you know, being able to resume some sort of normal here in the future..."
