STAFF REPORTS

A structure fire at an Albertville business on U.S. Highway 431 halted traffic near the Kilpatrick Road intersection as crews worked for over an hour to douse the flames.

Albertville Fire Marshall Brett Ennis told The Reporter that firefighters got the call at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and arrived on scene at the local business, Electromecanico, to find it fully involved.

The fire inflicted damage on two vehicles inside the structure and one outside and rendered the building a total loss. 

Multiple crews worked the fire, including Beulah Volunteer Fire Department.

Ennis said the cause of the fire is still being investigated but will most likely be ruled as undetermined due to the structure damage being deemed too unsafe for them to enter.
