Firefighters investigate blaze at Savannah Architectural Supply - WTOC-TV: Savannah, Beaufort, SC, News, Weather & Sports

Firefighters continue to investigate W Gwinnett St. blaze


On Friday, one day after crews put out a massive blaze at Savannah Architectural Supply on West Gwinnett Street, firefighters returned to begin their investigation.

Savannah Architectural Supply is a business that sells commercial doors and hardware supplies. It also serves as a mill workshop with products fire officials say helped fuel Thursday's fire.

The investigators say they don't know what caused the fire yet, but they say they are concentrating their efforts on the rear of the building, which sustained the most damage. Firefighters say it could take up to a week to complete this investigation.

C. L. Gayheart, owner of Savannah Architectural Supply, tells WTOC that they will bounce back.

"We are saddened by the fire at our warehouse but are certain that we will have things up and running in no time," said Gayheart. "We would like to thank our loyal customers for their support and assure them that we will have an operating office on Monday."
