CORNWALL, N.Y. -- More than one hundred firefighters were called into action to battle a large fire at a Cornwall industrial complex. The three alarm fire happened at the complex on Mill Street around 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to fire officials.

Fire investigators say the fire is suspicious and is currently under investigation by a number of law enforcement agencies. They say the fire was difficult to manage because of the hot temperatures outside and took more than hour to get under control.

"Heavy fire conditions were encountered an exterior attack was initiated utilizing tower ladders aerial master stream devices to provide fire support. Numerous mutual aid companies were utilized we had to rotate crews out due to the heat. We've had no injuries on the scene and right now were mopping up the fire and wrapping up all the equipment," said Patrick Hines, Cornwall Fire Department.

The same complex was the site of a massive fire back in January. Fire officials say the two fires are not connected.
