BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Around 10 a.m. Monday, Bowling Green fire crews were called to the scene of a fire that broke out at Wiesemann Orthodontics.

“When we arrived, we found that the rear of the building was on fire,” Marlee Boenig with the Bowling Green Fire Department said.

Everyone made it out of the building okay, and there were no injuries reported. Seven firetrucks and 25 personnel with the fire department were at the scene.

“The fire was extinguished really quickly, we had an investigator there who took a look at everything,” Boenig explained.

As of now, the cause of the fire has not been determined. US-31W was closed for a period of time to keep personnel safe as the business is located near the road, but it has since reopened.
