DeKalb County Volunteer Firefighters prevented the Company Store from being destroyed by a blaze Saturday night.
The business, located on Highway 96 near Cove Hollow, was closed at the time of the fire.
A passerby spotted the blaze coming from the roof on one end of the building and reported it.
County Fire Chief Donny Green told WJLE that members of the Liberty, Temperance Hall, and Main Stations responded along with manpower from other stations. The tanker and equipment truck were also on site. County firefighters contained the blaze to the kitchen and office area side of the building and kept it from spreading.
The cause of the fire is undetermined.
