Fort Wayne firefighters reported to two business fires early Saturday morning, including one that caused heavy damage at an industrial complex.At 4:52 a.m., firefighters were called to 5402 Moeller Road on a report of a structure fire. More than 60 firefighters battled flames. Firefighters were eventually called out of the building because of dangerous structural issues, according to Stacey Fleming, FWFD spokeswoman.

The building sign says Hall Aluminum Product but houses about 13 businesses, Fleming said.

Several other fire agencies assisted the FWFD with water supply because of the distance the building was from water hydrants, Fleming said.

New Haven, Poe, Hoagland, Monroeville, Northeast and St. Joe Township assisted.

Firefighters had the blaze under control by 6:55 a.m.; however, crews planned to remain on the scene throughout the morning.

Soon after, Fort Wayne firefighters were called to assist New Haven with a blaze at Motel Wayne, 7001 U.S. 930. The fire is still raging as this time. It appeared several rooms were destroyed and heavy smoke filled the sky.
