Fire damages Russellville business

November 22nd, 2017 in Local News

A crack in a flue is believed to have led to a fire at a business Wednesday morning in Russellville.

The fire at Rockelmans Body Shop on Railroad Avenue happened around 6:40 a.m., according to reports from the Russellville/Lohman Fire Protection District.

The business' owner contacted fire officials after starting a fire in a wood stove to warm the building up.

The fire spread into the attic; and while fire crews were able to save the building, the fire caused extensive damage throughout the structure.

No injuries were reported.
