The fire was at in a building owned by Hope Brothers Builders located at 607 Bond Street. In the past it had been the home to Bost Furniture and Classic Leather.
According to Iredell County EMS, the structure caught fire around 7:15 p.m. The two-story building used to be a furniture factory but was no longer in use, officials said.
No electrical power was running to the building, leading some to wonder if the fire could have been caused by someone going in.
"One of the owners was just in here two days ago, didn't notice anybody trying to break in," said Fire Marshal Mike Billings.
Pictures sent to the WBTV newsroom showed a plume of smoke that could be seen several miles away Tuesday night.
Once on the scene, firefighters decided to fight the fire defensively, staying outside the building and keeping flames from spreading to nearby homes and businesses.
Neighbors described a frightening site.
"I seen all this fire everywhere," said Chandra Dulin, who lives just a few doors down from the plant. "People all up and down the street here, it was a big flame, it was something I ain't never seen before, it was terrible."
No one was injured as a result of the fire.
The entire building collapsed.
As of Wednesday morning, a small fire crew was still at the scene to ensure the fire didn't flare up again. The building was still smoldering as of 7:30 a.m.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
