Old shoe store burns in Marion

Firefighters battled a fire at the old Payless Shoe Store on Highway 76 in Marion.

Captain Jackie Yates said a passerby saw flames coming from the tip of the building and called 911.

He added crews were able to get the fire contained and under control.

Marion police blocked a portion of Highway 76 as crews fought the fire.

We're told the building was under renovation to house a law firm.

Yates said a cause has yet to be determined.

While the fire appears to be accidental, because of the extent of the damage they may never know what started it.

This is the second fire at a commercial building in Marion this week.

A massive fire destroyed the IGA Tuesday morning on Main Street in Marion.
