NORTHWOOD, ND—A fire destroyed a longtime trucking business in Northwood, North Dakota overnight.

Video we received came from the family that owns Korsmo Trucking.

The fire was called in by a semi driver who was asleep inside and heard strange noises around 2:30 Friday morning.

There were six trucks inside the building as well.

Nobody was hurt, but the business lost everything inside.

It's owned by the father of the Northwood Fire Chief.

The chief has only held the position for five days and this was his very first call for a fire.

He says his family will rebuild the business.

There is no loss estimate available as of Friday at 5:00 p.m. and the cause is under investigation.

The business operates across much of the Midwest.
