An early morning fire at a vacant industrial building in Deerfield required crews from nearly two dozen departments Friday.

Crews were alerted just before 3:30 a.m. of flames coming from the Deerfield Innovators Mill on McClelland Farm Road.

Mutual aid was required from about 20 departments, totaling more than 100 responders and 35 trucks from departments in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Deerfield Fire Department officials told CBS 3 the fire was knocked down by 9 a.m., but they expected crews to remain on scene for most of the day.

Damage to the building is isolated to one corner. 

No injuries were reported.

According to the listing, the former grain plant's warehouse measures 40,000 square feet and is located on a six-acre site.

Officials believe the cause of the fire was from a torch used during renovation the day before.
