Firefighters were called about 2:30 p.m. to a business in the 2900 block of South Cushman Avenue.

Crews put out a fire there, and have reopened Center Street nearby, which they shut down as they responded.

There was a report of a small explosion in the building, and the fire was in the part of the building where plywood is manufactured, Tacoma Fire spokesman Joe Meinecke said. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

No one was injured.
