A sawmill in the Spartansburg area was destroyed by fire early Monday morning.

Officials say the fire on Sportsman’s Road in Sparta Township, south of Route 77, was reported at about 4:00 AM.  Spartansburg and Bloomfield Township firefighters responded, and were on the scene for about two-and-a-half hours.  They said the sawmill was fully involved in flames when they arrived.

Early indications were that the fire may have been started by a wood stove — whether that would have been a heating stove or a unit utilized by the business was not known.  No injuries were reported.
