SALEM (WSLS 10) - The Salem Fire Marshal's Office is investigating after an overnight fire at Brinks Inc. on Turner Road.

Salem responded just before 2 a.m. Tuesday. No one was in the building at the time of the fire, but the entire structure did sustain heavy fire and smoke damage.

The first unit arrived within six minutes of receiving the call and found heavy black smoke coming from the building. It took firefighters more than an hour to contain the blaze. The fire appears to have started inside a vehicle that was parked inside the building.

About 36 personnel from the Salem, Roanoke and Roanoke County responded.

There is no damage estimate at this time.
