HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV/AP) -

A fire early Thursday destroyed a contractor's shop near Hillsboro.

Washington County firefighters say flames were shooting through the roof when they arrived at 4700 NW Sewell Road about 1:45 a.m.

There are no hydrants in the area, so firefighters had to shuttle water from a quarter-mile away.

The building is a total loss. A truck, car, equipment and tools were stored in the building. Damage is estimated at $75,000.

Fire investigators are just beginning to look into the cause of the fire.  There were no injuries.
