BELMONT, NC (WBTV) - Crews worked to extinguish a business fire on Wilkinson Boulevard in Belmont Wednesday morning, which closed the road down in both directions for hours. The lanes on Wilkinson Boulevard started reopening just before 8 a.m.

The fire was reported at Automated Card Feeding around 6 a.m. on Wilkinson Boulevard between 6th and Catawba Street, near Gaston College's Kimbrell Campus, officials say.

Officials say the business has been there for three generations. No one was inside at the time of the fire.

Fire investigators have not said what they believe may have started the fire.
