Right now fire crews are working to put out a blaze at Hilton Landscape Supply off Blackwell Road in Central Point.

The call came shortly after nine this evening.

So far we know some sorting machinery with fuel ignited, and the surrounding large piles of sawdust caught fire.

"Yeah, these piles are really hot -- the one that's on fire. It's going to take some heavy machinery to spread it out and a fair amount of water to put it out."

It's expected fire crews will be out there for a while, as winds are not helping the situation.

Right now the investigation is still ongoing to find out what caused the fire.

Count on NBC 5 to bring you the latest updates as we get them.
