TOULON - Multiple fire departments are on the scene of a fire at the Super Valu grocery store in Toulon. Eyewitnesses tell WMBD 31 the fire started around 2:30 Friday afternoon.
Fire officials say two employees were inside at the time, but made it out safely. They say the fire started in the basement, which is a problem for the four departments on the scene. They cannot get downstairs and can only fight it from the roof and back of the store so far. Smoke from the fire can be seen for miles.
Our crew on the scene spoke with the Mayor of Toulon. He tells us the community has fought to keep the grocery store in town and that this is a devastating blow.
We'll have more details on this developing story as it becomes available.
