Volunteers takes files out of the Melton Law Firm Thursdat night.

A fire broke out in a restaurant in downtown Woodbury Thursday night right in the middle of a heavy snowstorm.

The fire started inside J.P.'s Fine Swine BBQ on Tatum Street.

Cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

The building was apparently unoccupied at the time of the fire, which started around 7:30 p.m.

Due to the fire possibly spreading to other buildings, two businesses next store to J.P. Fine Swine, the Melton Law Firm of Susan Melton and Joe's Place Restaurant, where cleared of most of their furnishings and files.

Firefighters had the fire mostly under control by shortly after 9 p.m. and were clearing smoke out of the building, but smoke was still coming out of the building

Scores of volunteers assisted in moving items out of the adjacent buildings.

The extent of the damage caused by the fire is not known at this time. George and Anna Pittman of J.P.'s Fine Swine were anxiously waiting and watching outside after being called to the scene from their home.

I know first hand what its like to lose a business to a fire. I owned Second Best Consignment when it burned last year. It will be a long and painful recovery. All of these businesses have my deepest sympathy.

The "block" is on the Town of Woodbury. The Town of Woodbury has building codes. However, Cannon County should also have building codes.
