The Wytheville Surplus Property Store/Warehouse at 800 E. Main St. might be without power for several days after a fire at the store Tuesday morning.
Wytheville Fire Chief Marc Brade said the electrical fire started around 10:30 a.m. in a back room of the store where electricity runs in from outside. He said the fire appears to be accident, possibly from malfunctioning equipment. No injuries were reported.
The fire chief said there was substantial damage to the electrical system, but minimal damage to the building with no compromise to the structure.
