LAWRENCEBURG, TN (WSMV) -

A historic Lawrenceburg building was severely damaged by an early morning fire on Sunday.

Members of the Lawrenceburg Fire Department were called to the site of the Lindsey Manufacturing Company around 4 a.m. 

Crews found the 3rd Street building fully engulfed in flames. Although the building was vacant, the facility was home to a church pew manufacturer for decades.

Highway 43 was closed for a short time due to firefighting efforts.

"With the roof being collapsed, what's smoldering now and putting off smoke is trapped between the roof and the floor, and it's inaccessible for us to get to. We don't have any major fire at all - it's just a smoldering fire putting a little bit of smoke right now. We're just going to keep an eye on it for the next 24 hours," said Lawrenceburg Fire Chief Jay Moore.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.

Arson units will be on the scene on Monday.
