CASS COUNTY, Mich. -- A massive fire broke out overnight at the TriStar Molding, Inc. building in Marcellus. The company says the building is a complete loss, but all employees were able to make it out of the building safely. 

"We have suffered a major catastrophe tonight," the company said in a Facebook post. "Our building caught on fire and is a total loss. Everyone got out so thank you Lord for that! Please share to all so they know not to report tomorrow. When we know more we will share it. I will get with unemployment tomorrow morning to get everyone signed up and I will keep you updated. Please keep us all in your prayers."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

"We are told we can’t be in to see the damage for a week. I will share as much as I know when I know it. You know I’m transparent and will let you know," the company said. "I may not know for over a week what our plans are. Love you all and know we do all we can for you. My heart breaks for all our employees. You’re the most amazing people we have had the blessing to know. We will do all we can for you. Will keep you all informed as I know. Love you."
