Major Fire at Woodsmen Distillery

Fire crews put out a major structure fire at the Woodsmen Distillery in Higbee Sunday morning. Randolph County Emergency Management Director David Gaines says the Higbee Fire Department was at the scene first, around 6:30, and immediately requested mutual aid.

No one was at the facility at the time, and no firefighters were injured.

The fire was under control less than two hours later. The intersection of Routes A and B is back to normal. Gaines also thanked the members of the community who brought drinks out to the emergency personnel.
