Fire Damages Building In Downtown Montgomery

If you were anywhere near Riverwalk Stadium on Thursday night, you no doubt saw the smoke around 7:15.

Montgomery firefighters responded to a fire at the old Stern Warehouse, a multi-story building.

Firefighters won't say much, other than it was a vacant building.

The blaze apparently was started accidentally and only minor damage was reported.

At least six fire trucks responded to the scene. The fire was brought under control in about 20 minutes.

WSFA 12 News crews also saw Montgomery police shut down Tallapoosa Street from Riverwalk Stadium to Commerce Street.
