HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Good morning!

Crews respond to structure fire at Wilson Lumber:

Happening right now, crews have responded to Wilson Lumber Company for a structure fire.

The call came in about 4:30 a.m. from a passerby. It is located on Meridian Street right off of Memorial Parkway. Nine units and a HAZMAT crew are on the scene. East and West Winchester Road is shut down until the fire is manageable.

It seems like it is a maintenance building in the back of the business.

WAFF's Muriel Bailey is on the scene at this time. As soon as we have more information, we will pass it along.
