The Quincy Fire Department responded to a five-alarm fire that gutted a wood refinishing business located at 219 Oak Street in Quincy.

Crews made entry into the building and encountered heavy smoke and had difficult visibility as they made their way to the back of the building. Fire was found on the second floor of the building.

The aerial truck was used to put water on the building's roof and crews cut a ventilation hole in the roof.
