(Estherville)-- An Estherville business was heavily damaged in a fire Friday afternoon.

The Estherville Fire Department was called shortly before 2:30 pm to Randy's Body and Wrecker at 1020 6th Avenue South. Heavy smoke could be seen coming from the structure. 

The Wallingford and Gruver Fire Departments were then summoned for mutual aid for man power. 

It's believed the fire started near the chimney of an oil burner, and that it quickly spread to some insulation in the attic.

Firefighters were on the scene about four hours.

No injuries were reported.
