KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - A downtown Kilgore business is destroyed by fire.

Crews were called to Maness Furniture Store around seven Wednesday evening.

It took 4 engines more than 2 hours to put out the flames, which some witnesses described as "high as oil derricks."

Everything in the building located on East Main Street is believed to be destroyed; two connected businesses were damaged in the blaze.

Fortunately, no injuries from the fire were reported.
