The fire was spotted by a driver going through town at about 10:30 p.m. Monday night, said to be from Canada.
Local volunteer firemen fought the fire until 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, leaving a thick ice rink surrounding the former parts store.
Owners of the building are Sherry and Burt Howard, who ran a video business and have lived out of the area several years. Most recently, Timberline Auto Parts occupied the building. The business was sold a couple years back by Joanne Powers to Nancy Rogers' brother and Nancy operated the business until she closed it last summer. The building was cleared and has been up for sale. Dickson Realtor Bonnie Jessee said she had an offer on it and hopes of it being restored.
