An overnight fire has caused damage in a north Alabama courthouse, and leaders are trying to figure out what to do next. Local media reports that Moulton firefighters located the fire in a cubicle on the second floor after receiving an alarm. Firefighters say it was an electrical fire that was put out by the sprinkler system.
Lawrence County officials announced on social media that the county courthouse in Moulton sustained fire, water and smoke damage from a blaze late Monday. The building is closed indefinitely, and commissioners are meeting Tuesday to discuss the next step.
