Firefighters were on the scene of a large fire at a local furniture shop in West Columbia early Sunday night, officials said.

Firefighters were working to control the blaze at Outdoor Wood Furniture Inc., 718 Meeting Street, in West Columbia, about a mile from the Gervais Street bridge, around 7 p.m. West Columbia Police Chief Dennis Tyndall said.

The fire forced the closure of Meeting Street to traffic in both directions, officials tweeted.

No other details were immediately available and it is not known if there are any injuries from the fire, though Tyndall said he believed the store was closed on Sundays.
