QUEENSBURY, N.Y. -- An overnight fire destroys two SCA Tissue warehouses in Queensbury. SCA Tissue is a paper company that makes things like bath and facial tissue.

Nine fire companies were called to Big Bay Road around 2:30 a.m. Firefighters say that when they arrived, the first warehouse was fully engulfed and flames had already spread to the second warehouse. Firefighters say it's one of the biggest fires they've ever seen. They also tell us that the building is a complete loss.

Luckily, there were no injuries. Officials don't believe anyone was inside the building at the time of the fire. Officials have note yet identified the cause of the fire.

SCA Tissue released a statement regarding the fire, saying, "The warehouse was used for storage and that they do not expect this to affect their production or ability to deliver products to customers as promised." They also wanted to thank the local fire departments who responded to the call.
