Members of the West Stanly Fire Department said they called in additional help from Union and Cabarrus counties, but it was ultimately a “total loss” for the furniture factory.

According to the Stanly County fire marshal, a state investigator was brought in to help figure out what caused the fire because of how big it was and how long it burned.
