FRUITLAND, MO (KFVS) -

Multiple fire crews are on hand near Flickerwood Arena in Fruitland for structure fire. It's at the shaving barn off of Larch Lane.

Witnesses say it is fully engulfed. We hear it has propane tanks inside. Jackson Fire Department confirms they are adding mutual aid for the sawmill fire.

The Fruitland assistant fire chief said the goal is to get as much water as possible on the fire. He said they are keeping it contained. The shaving barn stored big logs and had lots of sawdust.

More tankers carrying water are expected to arrive shortly.

No cause has been given for the start of the fire, but the state fire marshal is on scene.
