East Governor John Sevier Highway is re-opened this morning and Rural Metro Fire is investigating the structure fire that caused it to close down.

It happened yesterday (Sunday) afternoon in the 2000 block near Clanton’s BBQ and Asbury.

It was an unoccupied commercial property that was being used as storage and due to excessive hoarding conditions inside the building crews had difficulty fighting this fire.

No injuries were reported.
