DIANA, TX (KLTV) - Multiple East Texas fire departments responded to the scene of a warehouse fire in Diana Tuesday night.

Gilmer Fire says they were called to assist in the blaze at Small Woods and Associates warehouse in the 100 block of Village Drive in Diana around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night. About 50 people are employed at the business.

A neighbor tells KLTV he heard what he believed to be an explosion just before the fire. Early Wednesday morning several fire departments were working to tame the metal warehouse fire including Ore City, Glenwood, Judson, and Harleton.

Crews fought the fire for seven hours.

Firefighters say the warehouse was full of cloth, wood products and paint.

An official cause of the fire has not been determined at this time.

The owner tells KLTV that they are opening a location in the White Oak area and employees will not be out of work.
