RUTLAND, Vt. -

A fire shut down a portion of Route 7 in Rutland for multiple hours Wednesday night.

The blaze totaled Pratico's Landscaping and Fence at the intersection with Lincoln Avenue.

Five departments worked together to tackle the fire.

Investigators believe space heaters may be to blame.

"Our dispatch got multiple calls as people were driving by. We're bringing in an excavator to clean up what's left," said Assistant Fire Chief Nick Denardo, with the Rutland Town Fire Department.

Officials say no one was in the building at the time of the fire and no one was injured.
