The fire started after 3 p.m. Tuesday on the northwest corner of the building and picked up fast. Firefighters say no one who works at the warehouse was hurt and they were able to get out safely. The Pulaski fire chief was treated for smoke inhalation, but is OK.  However, the building is a total loss.

The fire was made even more dangerous by propane tanks on the property exploding with the heat.
