Police Chief Jim Lipuma said everyone escaped from the building. One employee was welding inside the business when he noticed the fire.
Lipuma said once crews arrived at the scene, they initially could not enter the building.
“There was diesel fuel and a bunch of different accelerants that were actually exploding inside the building. We also had main lines feeding the building. Electrical lines were burning as well as tension lines overhead that were on fire,” said Lipuma.
Plyler’s At Your Service has been located in Brookville since the 1990’s. Officials said the company cleans air ducts for local businesses and large corporations, such as Wal-Mart.
Lipuma said the building is a total loss.
Officials said the company’s concern right now is whether or not it wants to rebuild. Lipuma said the business is located on a flood plain.
The fire remains under investigation at this time.
