Fire damaged an assembly building Saturday at Cross Country Campgrounds in Denver.
Sherrills Ford-Terrell Fire and Rescue responded to the call about 3 p.m. on N.C. 150 East. Seventeen firefighters from Sherrills Ford-Terrell and five firefighters each from Bandys and Denver fire departments arrived on the scene to extinguish the fire, said Sherrills Ford-Terrell Fire Chief Keith Bost.
The first engine company had the fire under control in three minutes, and the scene was clear several hours later.
About 10 people were inside the building at the time of the fire, but the occupants were evacuated, and there were no injuries.
Firefighters contained the damage to one wall of the building. They saved 4,800 square feet of the 5,000-square-foot building, Bost said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
