Firefighters put out fire at commercial building
The owner of a commercial building alerted Beaumont fire rescue units to the fact that his building was on fire.
Firefighters were called out to a structure fire around 3 a.m. in the 700 block of Delmar and when they arrived they found flames coming through the roof of the building.
The fire at the Gulf Coast Novelty Company was difficult to put out and firefighters battled the flames for nearly four hours.
Beaumont fire officials believe the fire was caused by sparks from a grinding operation.
