A Cass County business suffered "extensive damage" in a fire starting Wednesday night in Remer, according to Fire Chief Paul Swentkofske.

Swentkofske said the fire started around 8:45, and firefighters didn't leave the scene until 2 o'clock the next morning.

There were no injuries, but Swentkofske said 25 people worked at the business. While he didn't call it a total loss, he said the fire warped the building's steel structural support.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the blaze.
