LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) - Early Tuesday morning, firefighters were called to the scene of a business fire in the Caddo community in Lawrence County.  It started around 4:00 a.m.

Firefighters say the storage building for the Country Mart Deli & Grocery caught fire.  The building is right next to the main business, near the intersection of County Roads 434 & 460 in Lawrence County.

Members of the Caddo and Chalybeate Volunteer Fire Departments managed to contain the fire to the storage building instead of it spreading to the main business.

There was no one in the building at the time of the fire.

Crews had to close County Road 460 for some time Tuesday morning in order to run a fire hose across the road.

The road is now back open.
