Police and firefighters in Boyertown, Pa., responded to a blaze Wednesday (March 30) night at Berks Mont Camping Center .

The Mercury News reported that at approximately 7:44 p.m., fire crews were dispatched for a report of a commercial building fire. Upon arrival, firefighters found that the dealership had caught fire and flames were coming through the roof.

After first responders realized that they were unable to use fire hydrants because of the distance, tankers were brought in to assist. Crews worked from both the inside of the building and the roof to douse the fire, according to authorities.

According to Gilbertsville Fire & Rescue Company, the flames were under control in about 20 minutes.

Employees were able to evacuate the building safely and no injuries were reported, police said in a Facebook post.

The business, established in 1998, is an RV dealership that also sells RV parts and accessories. The 10-acre property also serves as a storage facility for RV owners.
