Firefighters from two battalions, arriving in more than a dozen firefighting units, responded to a furniture store fire at the Rye Canyon Commerce Center, battling the blaze for an hour and a half early Thursday morning.

Shortly before 7 a.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station reported smoke coming from a furniture business on the 28000 block of Constellation Road, near Alta Vista Avenue.

“We evacuated a neighboring business,” Lt. Doug Mohrhoff said.

Firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department responding to the report of smoke arrived at the scene at 7:05 a.m., Fire Department spokeswoman Vanessa Lozano said.

“This was fire inside a large furniture store with an area of 100-by-100-feet,” she said, adding there was no report of injury.

Deputies extinguished the fire shortly before 8:30 a.m., and remained at the scene while firefighters finished it off.

“We provided safety and security in the area,” Mohrhoff said.
