Family business goes up in flames

No one hurt when fire damages Young's Garden Mart and Christmas Fantasy

WARREN, Mich. – A longtime family business in Warren has gone up in flames.

Young's Garden Mart and Christmas Fantasy sustained serious damage by a fire early Sunday morning.

The nursery has been in business since 1924.

Bev Harenski was in the store when she noticed the flames.

" First thing to do was call 911 and your adrenalines going so bad that I had to get out and try and save what I could," said Harenski.

Fire crews were able to put out the fire before it spread to a warehouse filled with fertilizer.

"The fire didn't reach the warehouse where there was a large supply of material including fertilizer, which could have created a hazardous material situation if it ignited. We're very thankful today," said Wilbert McAdams with the Warren Fire Department.

The family plans to rebuild in the future.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
