From Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader:Highway 27 at the Selman Drive Entrance is still blocked. No traffic is allowed through because of fire hoses across the highway still may be a little while before we can open the highway back up.
A 5:45 a.m. fire at Benny’s #1 gas station in Trion totally destroyed the building today.
The fire started at the back of the store and spread through the roof, according to witnesses.
Traffic as of 8:25 am. is being directed around the fire. Watch for delays.
