Large fire destroys part of Harpersville business

HARPERSVILLE, AL (WBRC) - The SCS building on Highway 280 westbound in Harpersville was partly destroyed by fire. The fire started around 4pm Thursday.

Westover, Cahaba Valley, Four Mile, and Vincent helped Harpersville extinguish the blaze, which lasted for about 3 and a half hours. And for a while, traffic was completely stalled while firemen worked their way to the scene.

The owner's niece, Misty Vaughan Potts, says no one was in the building at the time of the blaze as her uncle had just recently departed.

There were no injuries and there's no word on how the fire started.
