Langdale Mill fire brought under control

A fire was reported at the old Langdale Mill at 8 this morning.

At least eight East Alabama and West Georgia fire departments responded and had the fire under control by 10 a.m. It appeared to start on the fourth floor at the north end of the building. That section of the mill was leased to the Norman Paschall Co., which was storing raw materials. Nylon and cotton bundles appeared to be feeding the fire.

The fire departments responding were Valley, Lanett, Huguley, Beulah, West Point, LaGrange, Opelika and LaFayette.
