February 27, 2015 09:03 AM

A delivery vehicle inside a garage at Shelton Family Foods on the 700 block of Saginaw Rd. in Solway Township is a total loss after a fire Thursday night.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's office says several fire departments responded to a large '40 by '80 garage fire after a caller reported seeing smoke coming from the building shortly after 5 p.m.

Authorities say the blaze started in an industrial food delivery vehicle that had been parked inside the garage a few hours earlier.

Crews were able to put the fire out, but the vehicle is a total loss and the garage is heavily damaged.

Damage estimates are initially set at over $50,000
