BREAKING: Chapman Highway closed due to fire at business

May. 03, 2013 @ 06:43 PM

Chapman Highway was closed in both directions and firefighters from several local departments were responding to a fire at a business in the area of Shiloh Church Road and Sugarloaf Road Friday.

The fire was apparently first reported by a passerby who flagged down a sheriff’s deputy, who was on the scene shortly after and called for firefighters.

Officials indicated they expect to be fighting the fire for some time and were calling for additional support.

They also were calling for utilities agencies to manage electrical and other lines affected by the fire.

No injuries have been reported so far.
