PHOTO: The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is investigating a fire that happened Wednesday night causing one of their buildings in Eufaula to go up in flames. According to Eufaula Fire Chief Ryan Feggins, the building, and most - if not all - of the equipment inside is a total loss. “There is nothing left but burned bits and pieces of charred equipment, hazardous remains of what the building used to be and the smell of smoke,” said Feggins. A smell that greets you all the way from the front of the campus, six buildings away. According to Feggins, the fire station received the call about 15 minutes after 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. “Large fire, a lot of explosions that the neighbors were hearing but they didn’t know where it was coming from,” said Feggins. Chief Feggins says he sent four fire trucks to respond to the fire, but for one of the buildings it was too late.
