HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Good morning! Here are some things to keep your eye on today!

Investigators are working to find the cause of an early morning fire at Wilson Lumber.

Today, investigators are trying to find out what caused an early morning fire at Wilson Lumber Company.

Earlier this morning, nine units and a HAZMAT crew were on the scene. East and West Winchester Road was to fight the blaze but is now back open.

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

Captain Frank McKenzie with the Huntsville Fire Department said that there was a propane tank on the scene that they thought was a danger, but they kept the tank cool with water to avoid the possibility of it exploding.

As soon as we have more information, we will pass it along. Tune in to WAFF News at Noon for more.
