Mooreville firefighters, along with help from other volunteer departments, fought the blaze from around 2 a.m. until 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Mooreville Fire Chief Ron White said the building was half burnt when they received the call and the building was fully consumed by the fire at the end of this morning.

Our previous coverage from three years ago:
