Emergency crews were called out to a business fire in Huntingdon County Tuesday night.

No one was injured and owners say the clean up will take a couple of days. They say that while there was major damage to three of there greenhouses, most of the damage was limited to their retail side. Their production houses were left mostly unharmed.

They hope to be able to re-open on Saturday.

Owner Daniel Martin said, “You can’t describe the feeling, it’s just a sick feeling.” He continued, “When I stepped outside my house I saw this red glow. I said ‘uh-oh it’s not just a little bit of smoke. This is for real.'”
