Shortly before 1:00 a.m. Monday, Jasper Fire Department responded to a call at Collins Building Supply between Jasper and Haletown on Highway 41.
Primarily, the damage is restricted to the lumber yard and building materials building, but the business is closed today and will open for regular business hours tomorrow, February 14.
The consensus for officials on scene was the fire started in a paint room and spread through the building. Jasper Fire Chief expected to have the road open and clear the scene by noon today.
Just one day after the fire, Collins Building Supply was back open serving customers. The staff and management extended their thanks to the community for their outpouring show of support for the business and looks forward to serving the community as full capacity very soon.
