      Fire engulfs woodworking business

      A Bay City business is damaged after a fire melted its steel frame Sunday afternoon.

      The Bay City Fire Department responded to a fire at Strait's Wood Treating Company in Bay City at around 4 Sunday afternoon.

      A neighboring business called in the fire.

      Officials say the building was "fully engulfed" when they arrived.

      They were able to get the fire under control in about 2.5 hours.

      The business treats wood and lumber and sells it to wholesalers.

      Officials say there were combustible elements and wooden panels inside the building at the time of the fire.

      The cause of the fire is under investigation,
