A commercial van was heavily damaged and building materials lost in a fire at Martin Roofing Services Inc. on Golden Needles Street in Wilkesboro Wednesday night.

Wilkesboro firefighters were dispatched about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday and found the front end of a Martin Roofing van engulfed in flames and an adjacent Martin van the same size threatened by the fire. The Moravian Falls Fire Department was dispatched to assist.

Except for some heat damage to the second van, firefighters were able to limit most of the damage to the first van. Both vehicles were Dodge Ram vans.

No details on the possible cause of the fire were immediately available.
