For the second time in a week, the old textile mill on Alabama Avenue in south Haleyville has caught on fire.

The mill, located at 801 Alabama Avenue, has been vacant for several years.

A dozen fire departments have responded to the scene and the firefighters are using the burn as a training opportunity.

Thick black smoke can be seen coming from the mill for several miles.
