Oak Hill, W.Va. (AP) -- The State Fire Marshal's office is investigating a fire that destroyed the largest antique mall in southern West Virginia.
Oak Hill firefighter Jason Gregory says the Carpetbaggers Antique Mall collapsed in flames last night. No one was injured.
Gregory says firefighters from six area fire departments battled the blaze for nearly six hours.
The building was a total loss. It housed 90 antique dealers.
The Fayette County Assessor's Office says the building was assessed for $111,540. The value of the contents isn't known.
Retired coal miner Dave Bounds says ashes from the fire covered his car parked nearly a mile away from the mall.
