Fire destroys Lauderdale Co. business

A business on Highway 101, just a few miles from downtown Lexington, caught fire Wednesday night. Firefighters received the call just after 9:00 last night. Crews received help from four other firefighter units to help extinguish the blaze, which was located in the back of the building. Officials say the building was being remodeled and is likely a total loss. The name of the business is unknown at this time but sources say that it sold lumber. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire remains unknown.
