Authorities are investigating the cause of a fire at the Hayneville Plaza that broke out around 11:30 Tuesday night. The blaze left several businesses destroyed.
Hayneville, Burkville, and Lowndesboro Volunteer Fire Departments were on scene overnight. The State Fire Marshal's office is also on the scene.
Several businesses were destroyed including a branch of ALFA Insurance Co., a Subway restaurant and the Family Guidance Center. The State Fire Marshal is assessing the damage and has requested the assistance of the U.S. Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
At this time the ALFA Insurance office has moved one of its mobile units to Hayneville to serve as a fully functioning office in place of the destroyed building.
"Although our service center was destroyed, we are thankful no one was hurt," said ALFA President Jimmy Parnell. "We are committed to our policyholders. The mobile response unit allows us to continue serving our customers in Lowndes County and the surrounding area. ALFA policyholders can have confidence their information and policies are safe."
Crews and investigators are still working, sifting through the rubble of the once busy shopping center, trying to determine the fire's cause.
