MARION Early this morning firefighters from Burke, Mitchell, Rutherford, and Buncombe Counties were on scene of a massive fire in an old cotton warehouse. Will Keller, Emergency Services Director for McDowell County, reported that the call came in at 12:33 a.m. for the Chamad Warehouse on Virginia Road near the Clinchfield community.

The cause of the fire is not known and no one is believed to have been inside. The fire could burn for days due to the size of the warehouse and the materials  inside.

The community can expect temporary power outages as power connections have been disconnected in the area. Delays may affect East Court Street due to fire operations.
