HAGERSTOWN, Md. — An investigation is underway after a 60,000 square foot warehouse erupted in flames Friday morning in Hagerstown.

The building located at 231 East Oak Ridge Drive, is home to Hearty Pet, an online dog food retailer, and Bustin' Boards, a skateboard manufacturer.

Damage is estimated to be worth over $2 million.

It took about two and-a half hours for nearly 100 firefighters from multiple agencies to control the two-alarm fire.

One firefighter was taken to Meritus Medical Center for minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

Investigators believe they found where the fire began, but are still looking into what caused the fire.
