First responders called to small downtown electrical fireBy Matt Cole Published 11:06am Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Demopolis Fire and Rescue and the Demopolis Police Department responded to the Mustard Seed downtown Tuesday morning for what turned out to be a small electrical fire.
Capt. James Bailey of Demopolis Fire and Rescue said a wall outlet shorted out, and little damage was caused to the building.
“It really wasn’t even a fire,” Bailey said. “An outlet shorted out, causing a spark and some smoke. Some wires were damaged and the Sheetrock around the outlet where we had to check for the problem had to be taken out. Other than that, there was no damage.”
The business remained open for business and no one was injured.
