There was a fire early Sunday morning at Ingles Supermarket in Summerville.

The blaze started around 12:15 a.m. (Sunday) at the back of Ingles. It appears that a bale of cardboard boxes caught fire and somehow the very back portion of the roof caught fire too. The Summerville Fire Department, Hays State Prison Fire, and the Trion Fire Department responded to the blaze.

It did not take long to isolate the bale of cardboard and bring the fire under control. Fire fighters brought in ladders to access the roof to look for hotspots. They used a special thermal imaging camera on the roof to look for possible locations that might catch fire again.
