Firefighters were called to First Mill Street in Sheffield early Sunday evening for a structure fire.

Upon arrival at around 6 p.m., flames could be seen rolling out of the north eave of the roof and smoke was coming from the southeast of the building.

The First Mill Street building was once a store but is now under a demolition permit. No one was inside the vacant building.

The cause was said to be accidental.

Kevin Bell, chief for Sheffield Volunteer Fire Department, believes a burning pile of rubble in the back of the building may have been the origin point of the flames.

It took 30 minutes to get the fire knocked down and the extent of the damage was mainly on the north wall and northeast corner of the building.

No injuries were reported.

Sheffield Volunteer Fire Department, Clarendon Volunteer Fire Department, and Cherry Grove Volunteer Fire Department responded.
