Fire crews in Chickasha are calling a fire in a storage building on Monday suspicious.

The former Saddle Club in Chickasha, where Highway 19 and 81 meet, went up in flames on Monday. Fire officials said they had to call out eight departments to put out the flames.

"The wind is a big major thing. With the wind in there, it created a lot of extra heat. Also being in a contained building, it built the heat up a little extra," said Chief Glenn Parker of the Chickasha Fire Department.

No one was hurt in the fire. The building is a total loss, said fire officials.
