Multiple units responded to a structure fire in Scottsboro early Friday morning.
The fire destroyed a Hardee's restaurant off US 72.
Scottsboro Fire Chief Gene Necklaus told WAAY 31 the call came in around 12:15. Crews arrived to find heavy fire conditions in the back. Chief Necklaus said the fire self-vented through the roof.
Because of the risk of collapse, crews attacked the fire from the outside.
The fire is under control at this time but a total loss. There is also minor damage to a neighboring business.
No injuries were reported.
Crews are working on the cause of the fire, but believe it was accidental.
The owner told WAAY 31 news, he built the building back in 1986 and it was heartbreaking seeing the building destroyed.
He said he hopes to rebuild it.
