A tree-trimming truck and part of a Franklin business’s building were damaged in a fire Monday night.
Franklin firefighters were called to Brown’s Tree Service off U.S. 31 South about 9:15 p.m. after a passer-by noticed the fire, spokesman Chuck Ridpath said.
Officials spent two-and-a-half hours at the scene and are still investigating the cause of the fire, which destroyed a truck and part of the pole barn-type building where it was stored, Ridpath said.
The fire also caused smoke damage throughout the building and caused firefighters to close part of U.S. 31 to get access to a hydrant, Ridpath said.
No one was in the building at the time of the fire, Ridpath said.
