Several fire departments were on the scene of a Elkton Road fire Friday morning, which totally destroyed a shop on Elkton Road.
Firefighters say no one was inside at the time and no one was hurt, but the building is destroyed. There’s no word yet on the cause of the fire.
Firefighters say they were able to keep it from spreading to surrounding structures. Elkmont, Piney Chapel, and Owens volunteer fire departments along with firefighters from Athens, worked the blaze.
