HIGH POINT, N.C. -- A fire broke out at a High Point greenhouse Tuesday afternoon.

The fire started outside of a greenhouse at Nelson's Landscaping, which is located at 2132 White Farm Lane.

Michael Townsend, with the Guilford County Fire Marshal's Office, said wind likely caused the fire to spread to a greenhouse.

When firefighters arrived on the scene at 1:15 p.m., the greenhouse was fully involved.

Workers from surrounding greenhouses were able to get out safely.

Townsend said the fire took about 10 minutes to extinguish.
