ROYALTON, Minn. (KNSI) - Fire has reportedly done severe damage to a business in Royalton.

According to eyewitness reports, Fire crews from Royalton, Rice and Little Falls responded to Gene’s Repair, Sales, Tires and Towing at 704 Willow St. N., along Hwy. 10. 

As of 5:30 on Friday evening, crews from Royalton, Little Falls and Rice were still on the scene of the blaze, Mike Kampa from the Rice Fire Department tells KNSI.

Kampa declined to comment on the extent of the damage. 

At this point, traffic is backed up along highway 10 on that side of the road, something Kampa says is due in part to the fire and in part to construction taking place on that stretch of highway.

He says, if you're heading in that direction, you might want to reconsider, as you may be stuck in traffic for an indefinite amount of time. 

We'll keep you posted as we learn more.
