VIDEO: Crews responded to a massive building fire in Rockingham County Thursday morning. The historic former Spray Cotton Mill building in Eden, located on Church Street, caught fire around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday night and crews fought the flames well into Thursday morning. At least one wall of the historic mill collapsed from the heat and flames, but Chief Simpson with Eden police says the fire has been contained to one of the four buildings. Crews say the fire is under control and that they are able to scale back their response and no buildings or other businesses nearby are at risk at this time. Initially, 23 agencies responded to help fight the huge fire at the former Spray Cotton Mill. While crews are still on scene, people are asked to avoid Meadow Road at Stadium Drive, Church Street at Morgan Road and Boone Road at Early Avenue.
