Franklin business damaged in fire

A tree-trimming truck and part of a Franklin business’s building were damaged in a fire Monday night.

Franklin firefighters were called to Brown’s Tree Service off U.S. 31 South about 9:15 p.m. after a passer-by noticed the fire, spokesman Chuck Ridpath said.

Officials spent two-and-a-half hours at the scene and are still investigating the cause of the fire, which destroyed a truck and part of the pole barn-type building where it was stored, Ridpath said.

The fire also caused smoke damage throughout the building and caused firefighters to close part of U.S. 31 to get access to a hydrant, Ridpath said.

No one was in the building at the time of the fire, Ridpath said.
