From Lawrenceburg Fire Dept.:
Lawrenceburg Firefighters along with aid from New Prospect Fire, Ethridge Fire, Leoma Fire, and Gandy Fire, responded to a large occupied commercial structure fire reported in the downtown district at approximately 8:00 AM.
Emergency crews arrived to find heavy smoke, and fire conditions throughout the structure. The fire has been contained to the building of origin which is very important due to the close proximity of neighboring buildings.
Our crews will remain on scene throughout the day, and evening. We want to say a huge thank you to Lawrenceburg Police Dept., Lawrence County EMS, and Lawrence County E-911 for their assistance with this operation.
Please avoid the area if at all possible. We will follow up with a more detailed update after we are able to return our companies to service.
