Firefighters were called just after 3 a.m. to a business on Amsterdam Road in Liberty Township

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WYTV) – There isn’t much left of a Mercer County business as it burned to the ground around 3 a.m. Friday.

Firefighters were called just after 3 a.m. to a business on Amsterdam Road in Liberty Township.

The business is the Marpac Corporation, a recycling and parts cleaning business.

Heavy fire and smoke was coming from the building and several vehicles outside were on fire.

Springfield Township Volunteer Fire Chief Daniel Hutchins said roughly 12-15 departments from multiple counties responded to battle the fire.

Neighbors said they heard several explosions before the fire broke out.

“One of the biggest issues we had was the water supply due to a power line being down on one of the intersecting roads. We had units from four different counties. We were able to get it under control relatively quick.” Hutchins said.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
