HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

No one was injured, but a large part of a Madisonville business went up in flames late Tuesday night.

Madisonville fire crews responded just before 10 p.m. to reports of a large fire at Hawkins Auto Body Shop in Madisonville. 

There is no word yet what might have caused the blaze, but owners tell 14 News the building involved was a parts storage area. Owners also say that building was the oldest on site.

Ladder trucks from Madisonville Fire Department were deployed to battle the smoke billowing from the attic of the parts building.

Owners tell 14 News that the business has been operating for 27 years.
