The cause of a fire at a lumberyard in Hammond on Tuesday was electrical.
Clarence-Rockland Fire Chief Brian Wilson said a dump truck struck an overhead power line which caused a storage shed at J. Lalonde et Fils RONA building supplies to catch fire.
Firefighters responded to the scene at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon and got the fire under control. There were no injuries.
Wilson said damage is estimated at $500,000 to $600,000.
The business remains open.
