TARRANT, AL (WBRC) -

Firefighters now monitoring the remnants a commercial blaze in the 900 block of Thomason Avenue in Tarrant.

The fire has been since mid-afternoon Monday, Tarrant Fire Chief Patrick Hewitt said. Firefighters are trying to keep the flames from spreading into an area with highly flammable solvents. The fire chief says wood and sheet rock are inside the building in addition to the combustible materials.

No one was inside the building at the time of the fire and no one has been injured, Hewitt says.

The fire reportedly started on the interior walls of the building, which forced firefighters to cut through the exterior wall and fight the blaze from outside the building.
