A Huntsville business is a complete loss after a fire ripped through it Thursday morning.

The fire started inside Pride Entertainment around 2 a.m.

It took firefighters several hours to put out the fire. South Memorial Parkway had to be closed to allow fire hoses to reach across the road to the nearest hydrant, but reopened to traffic around 7 a.m.

The owner of the business, Rhonda Simon, said the building was full of furniture, most of which was destroyed. "The firefighters were absolutely wonderful," she said. "It's hot, it's dirty, it's nasty, and it's a holiday."

No one was inside when the fire started.

Investigators are looking for the cause.
