Storage Units Heavily Damaged In Fire

MANASSAS,Va. (WUSA) - Customers of a Manassas storage facility are counting up their losses.

About 80 storage units were heavily damaged or destroyed after flames broke out late Sunday night at the Stor-All facility on Sudley Road.

Fire crews are still out p the scene Monday trying to get through the debris.
They've been here since the fire broke out late last night
There are multiple buildings but the fire was in only one building that had 85 units in it.

They say not all the units have walls that go all the way up to the ceiling, so those gaps allowed the fire to jump from unit to unit causing substantial damage. No cause has been identified yet.
