Ray City - It took hours and over twenty-five firefighters to contain a blaze that destroyed a cabinet shop in Berrien County Monday night.

Ray City firefighter Rick Pennock shot video when the fire erupted at a cabinet shop off Allygaskins road around 10:00 PM Monday.

It took firefighters from Ray City, Nashville, New Lois and the Georgia Forestry Commission four hours to contain the blaze.

They say the shops accelerants made it hard to put out.  "At the cabinet shop there were a lot of chemicals, lots and lots and lots of lumber and plywood. The Georgia Forestry Commission was also on scene plowing a fire break around the area to keep it from getting into the woods," Ray City Fire Chief Robert Mikell.

Investigators are still searching for the cause of that fire.
