VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -

Volusia County firefighters are working to put out a fire that broke out in a Deland business Saturday night.

Firefighters said they were called to 1519 North Woodland Boulevard, just north of International Speedway Boulevard after a report of smoke showing from a building.

When firefights arrived, they found heavy flames and smoke pouring out of the two story building, officials said.

Volusia County deputies closed Woodland Boulevard so firefighters could put out the blaze.

The State Fire Marshal's office has been called to respond.
