An early morning fire has dealt a major blow to a long-time local business.

A warehouse, containing equipment and a workshop, owned by Chaleur Building Supply on Rue Principale in Beresford was destroyed in the blaze.

Details are few, however Beresford Fire Chief Danile Duguay says the fire is under control but crews are still working at the scene.

No official word yet on the cause of the fire, whether it damaged the main building, or if there were any injuries.

We've reached out to the Beresford Fire Department and BNPP for details.
