Two Employees Escape Lexington Warehouse Fire

Firefighters worked to put out a large fire at a warehouse off of South Main Street in Lexington, near the hospital.

LEXINGTON, N.C. -- Two people got out safely from a large warehouse fire in Lexington Wednesday night. 

The fire started around 5 p.m. at Border Concepts, located on Prospect Street. The building is in an industrial area just off of South Main Street, near the hospital. 

Lexington Fire Chief Paul Jarrett says two employees discovered smoke in the building, got out, and called 911. 

Several departments were dispatched to the scene, battling smoke and flames for nearly seven hours. 

Chief Jarrett said cold temperatures and flammables within the building made it difficult to put the fire out. 

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire. They say it started in a storage area of the building. 

No surrounding homes or businesses were damaged.
