A motor oil distributor’s warehouse caught fire early Thursday, sending flames 30 feet into the air and pumping thick black smoke over the surrounding fields.

The 11,250-square-foot Stern Oil Co. building was engulfed in flames. It housed cases of motor oil, bulk oil and air filters, said company President Gillas Stern. He said no employees were injured but did not know what sparked the early morning fire.

“It’s the first time in 31 years of being in business that this has happened,” Stern said. “It’s unfortunate, but we’re happy that all the employees — no one was hurt.”
