A fire alarm at the P.R. Hughes Trading Company warehouse at 1:12 a.m. Tuesday morning resulted in nine area fire departments responding to the fire on County Road 51, near the Haleyville airport. Reportedly, the warehouse was full of artificial flowers, cardboard boxes and styrofoam. The fire quickly engulfed the building putting most of the 32,250 square foot structure on the ground.
In addition to the Haleyville Fire Department, assistance of men and/or equipment was provided by Pebble, Bear Creek, Delmar, Lynn, Ashridge, East Franklin, Blue Springs and Phil Campbell Fire Departments.
