OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) -

A large fire swept through the old West Point Stevens Pepperell Mill in Opelika Tuesday night.

The plant closed in 2008 and was slated for demolition in 2011.

This is the same mill that was in the news in February due to a sludge spill.

At least 40 to 50 firefighters from East Alabama and Auburn are on scene battling the blaze, according to our news partner WTVM.

Firefighters say they'll be on the scene for hours.

We'll have additional information as it becomes available.
