Firefighters used chainsaws to cut holes in the shed's sides so they could get access to the fire. The fire was reported on Tuesday, May 11, around 5:39 p.m.

Firefighters cut holes in the sides of a shed between the two larger buildings. They also removed tires and wheels from the shed.

Martinsburg, Station 80, was dispatched first. The Station 80 officer in charge, then requested a water tender (tanker) from Station 60, the Friendship Fire Co. No. 1 of Roaring Spring. The officer a short time later requested a "full house" response from Station 60, meaning that he was requesting that the station send all available fire apparatus and manpower.

In less than half an hour, a Station 80 officer reported the fire to be under control.

Officials did not have a cause of the fire by the Herald's presstime, nor was a damage estimate available. There were no reports of injuries on Tuesday.
