Fire Blows Ammo

Firefighters were called to Valley Road Monday only to find themselves at more risk than usual when ammunition stored inside exploded.

Units from South Lauderdale, Lost Gap and Clarkdale at one point had to fight the fire from behind a tree. No one was injured.

Lauderdale County fire coordinator Clarence Butler said the residents had moved but were using the structure for storage.

Butler said Tuesday that the fire is attributed to an electrical short circuit.
