Hall County firefighters battled a commercial fire Saturday on Atlanta Highway, according to authorities.

Hall County Fire Rescue extinguished a shed that caught fire around 11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19, in the 3500 block of Atlanta Highway.

Eight hours later, firefighters returned to the same location, to see the main building engulfed in flames, according to the fire department.

“Once (firefighters) were able to flow water from above the structure and make a defensive attack, the fire was knocked down and brought under control,” according to the fire department.

Wallis Road was also closed to traffic trying to enter Atlanta Highway.

Both fires are under investigation by the Hall County Fire Marshal’s Office.

The Times has asked the fire department for more information on the business connected to these fires.
