Jonesburg-High Hill firefighters say no one was hurt after a building caught on fire Monday morning.

The first call for the fire came in around 9:13 a.m. Jonesburg-High Hill Fire Chief John Woods said. The chief added three people were inside the building at the time and that all of them made it out okay.

Jonesburg police officers were the first crews to arrive at the scene and said smoke and flames were coming out of the top of the building.

Crews said it took about two hours to get the blaze under control. The building was considered a total loss.

Woods said the building was used as temporary housing for out of town construction workers and storage. He said the workers' employer was working to find them new lodging.

Investigators with the State Fire Marshal's Office were called in. It wasn't immediately clear what started the fire, Woods said.
