WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A fire at a furniture store in West Columbia had crews busy Sunday evening.

At one point heavy smoke and flames were pouring out of Outdoor Wood Furniture Inc. on Meeting Street.

The fire led to the street being closed to traffic for hours.

No one was hurt but the store itself was deemed a total loss.

Responders say it was full of heavy wooden furniture that burned over a period of hours.

About 50 firefighters from West Columbia and Columbia were called out to put it out.

Investigators are looking into what caused the fire but at this point responders don't believe it was intentionally set.
