MOULTON, Ala. (WHNT) — Fire crews are working to put out a fire at a building which houses two businesses and a church on Alabama Highway 157, across the highway from Walmart.

The fire started just after 7:30 a.m. on the side of the building which houses Suzette Michelle Boutique.  The Advance America Cash Advance is next door, and is also affected.  Open Arms Ministries is the third tenant.  According to youth pastor Jeff Cole, the church has about 60 people attending on Sundays.  The church also operates a food bank.  It is unclear if any of the food was lost.

Crews on scene, with the help of a fire wall, prevented the fire from spreading to an adjacent chiropractic office.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
