The fire totaled the building that housed salvage yard's body shop.
According to Cherokee Fire Chief Gary Chase, when the CFRD reached the scene, flames were coming out of the south end of the building and kept spreading.
Chase deemed the building and all contents inside a total loss.
According to High Country Salvage Yard Owner Chris Staver, there were four tow trucks parked inside, along with four customer vehicles that were in for repair.
"No one was hurt, no fireman or anyone else. That's the main thing," said Staver. Staver said it was too soon to ponder the business's future. He did say that he might try to get a temporary shop up soon so the business could keep buying scrap metal.
Cause of the fire was not know at this time, however, Chase stated that the State Fire Marshal will be on the scene Wednesday afternoon to help determine what started the blaze.
The CFRD remained on the scene until early afternoon on Wednesday.
