Firefighters from all over Montgomery County are fighting a fire at a lumber yard in Willis.

A three-alarm fire broke out at a warehouse and several offices in Willis early this morning. The fire broke out around 2am at JFM International on FM 1097 near Mill Willis. At least seven departments responded to the massive fire.

"(There was) nobody on location, called in by a passerby," said Chief Bob Robinson with the North Montgomery County Fire Department. "So there was a lot of fire by the time we got here."

Wreckers were called to the scene to remove trucks that were inside the facility. No injuries have been reported.

FM 1097 has been shut down, so you'll need to find an alternate route if your commute goes through that area.
