DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - A Davenport business was damaged by a fire that broke out Tuesday afternoon.

Davenport firefighters were dispatched around 1:31 p.m. to Simply Amish of Davenport, 3711 N. Harrison St. An additional truck company and command staff also responded due to the size and progression of the fire, according to a media release.

Crews found heavy fire conditions from the loading dock and heavy smoke coming from the roof. The structure is a one-story commercial building with a large showroom, according to the release.

Crews began an aggressive exterior attack on the fire and ventilation holes were cut into the roof. Once the fire was knocked down, an interior attack was used to extinguish the remaining fire, according to the release.

Heavy smoke and fire damage were reported, with substantial damage to the contents inside the building. Crews remained on scene to check for fire extension and investigative purposes.

Mid-American assisted crews with securing utilities to the building.

No injuries were reported.

Traffic was detoured shortly but is currently back to normal on Welcome Way.
