Thick smoke could be seen billowing in the area and multiple fire departments were helping battle the blaze. Hamburg, Green Oak, Putnam, Brighton, and Northfield Township all responded on scene.

No injuries have been reported.

No word on a possible cause. Crews remained on scene into well the evening and there were intermittent road closures in the area of M-36 and Industrial Drive.

Monroe's is closed for business on Thursday and Friday. According to the company's website, they are still able to take calls, and will re-open on Monday.
