CLAY COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) – Flames could be seen Thursday morning inside the old Triangle Cabinetry and Design.
“We received a call for mutual aid from the county for a building on fire," West Point Fire Chief Ken Wilbourne said.
Wilbourne says they helped the county put out the fire that was called in about 2:30 a.m. but it was just too much.
“There wasn’t really anything they could do," Wilbourne said. "From my understanding it was fully involved when the county first got there. I think a passerby just happened to see it as they were driving through.”
This is at the intersection of Hazelwood Road and Payne Field Road. The business shut down years ago and the building was being used as storage.
“I was told there’s a second story built inside the structure," he said. "I haven’t been in there in years. I think there was a second story of storage inside.”
A flat bed truck and pickup truck were also damaged. There were some tables, chairs and other furniture that were saved. As far as how and where it started, officials still don't know. There was no one inside when the fire was called in and no one was hurt.
