HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Firefighters are trying to determine the cause of a warehouse fire after flames broke out early Monday morning.

The fire started around 1:15 a.m. in the 4200 block of Carolina Avenue. When crews arrived on scene, a small fire was found underneath of a conveyor belt.

There was moderate smoke and fire damage done to the warehouse, according to Henrico County Fire Investigators. The fire was marked under control at 01:38 AM. Due to the quick extinguishment and confinement to the area of origin, the business will be able to continue operations after some cleanup.

Fire crews continued to work for another hour and half checking for extension and removing smoke from the warehouse. The warehouse was not occupied at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
