A forklift at Longley Supply Company on Bells Fork Road near the intersection of Highway 17 in Jacksonville has exploded, catching the building on fire. Jacksonville city spokesman Glenn Hargett says the forklift was sitting under an overhang attached to the building when it blew up. At one point, Hargett says you could see the fire three miles away. No injuries have been reported.
Officials say the building and contents are probably a total loss.
