Firefighters and other emergency personnel were on the scene of what may have started as a propane or fuel tank fire, which then spread to a structure in Centre, on Friday morning.

The first call reporting the issue went out at approximately 7:20 am.

The initial location was Discount Lumber on Alabama Highway 9, and shortly after the entire building was fully involved.

Motorists were advised to be cautious, as water hoses were reported across areas of Highway 9 (Cedar Bluff Road) as fire departments battled the blaze.

More information to come as it becomes available.
