He says there were several propane explosions inside the building when they arrived at the scene.

Thomas says the business was closed at the time and no one was inside.

According to Montgomery Fire crews, there were still parts of the building burning this morning because they had limited water supply and had to call additional tankers.

Thomas also says there were no injuries during the fire.

He also says Kentucky State Police will be on scene this morning as they continue the investigation.
