TOLEDO (KWWL) -

Highway 63 is closed on the north side of Toledo as crews continue to fight a fire at the U.S.S. Polaris dealership Friday morning.

Witnesses tell KWWL that the fire started at around 6:45 a.m. Friday morning at 408 N. County Road in Toledo.

Tama, Garwin, Traer, Montour and Toledo Fire crews are on scene, as well as Toledo EMT. No injuries have been reported.

Charlotte Upah, who owns the tax business next door and whose husband owns the Polaris dealership, said no one was inside at the time of the fire. Someone drove by before 7 a.m., saw smoke and called 911, Upah said.

Officials still don't know the cause of the fire or where it started as of Friday morning.

Crews blocked off both ways coming into Toledo along Hwy. 63 are blocked for about a three- to four-mile stretch, meaning those trying to get in and out of the town Friday morning must use an alternate route.

The Polaris dealership sells ATVs, four-wheelers, mowers, snow blowers and other accessories.

KWWL has a crew on scene and will update this when more details become available.
