The building houses some of their larger training props, like a grain bin simulator and digital driving simulator.

Volz says, luckily, a majority of their training props were out with instructors at the time of the fire.

He says a lot of the smaller props and the Digital Driving Simulator, worth around $100,000 were completely destroyed.

“It’s been tough knowing a business you built from the ground up took a big blow. But we will recover. We will move on," Volz added.

Over 10 agencies responded to the fire.

The cause is still under investigation.
