Cause Undetermined In Carter’s Royal Dispos-All Fire

April 9, 2014

No one was hurt after a fire Tuesday at a Stephens County business.

Crews from Big Smith, Shiloh, and Eastanollee Fire Departments responded to Carter’s Royal Dispos-All off of Rock Creek Road in Stephens County Tuesday just after 11 a.m.

Big Smith Fire Chief Jonathan Jordan said that vehicles towards the back of the business’s property caught on fire Tuesday.

Jordan said about 300 cars caught fire and one building burned, as did a shed and numerous car parts.

He said the hydrant situation was difficult on the scene, making it hard to get water back to the fire to put it out.

Also, he said that firefighters could not get hand lines back to the fire through the junk cars, so all operations were done with a ladder truck.

During part of the time firefighters were on scene, Rock Creek Road was blocked in the area of Carter’s and traffic was detoured around so that crews could set up equipment to help fight the fire.

Firefighters were on the scene until after 4 p.m.

Jordan said that the official cause of the fire remains undetermined and is still under investigation.

He did say the fire was accidental in nature and is not considered suspicious.
