Quincy Fire Department to hold news conference at 1:30 regarding the fire

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

The call came in around 8:20 p.m. Sunday and was quickly escalated to five-alarm status. Flames were coming from the building as firefighters arrived and there was concern it would make its away around the block. Bayview Building Supply is located on the block northwest from the building.

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.

The fire was contained around 10:30.

The business, Salvage Lumber, is owned by Rick Delaney. John Heidbreder is the owner of the building.
