FORT MYERS, Fla. — South Trail Fire is working to determine the cause of an overnight business fire.

Crews were called to Rice Insulation and Glass around 1:30 a.m. Friday. The business is off Jetpark Loop.

The fire chief said firefighters had to cut through a large garage door in order to gain access to the building.

Florida Power and Light cut electricity to the building as fire crews doused flames. South Trail said on a Facebook post about the incident that a forklift was used to haul out burning materials.

Two firefighters were checked out by medical technicians at the scene but no major injuries were reported.

San Carlos Park and Estero Fire Departments also responded to the alarm.
