MONROE COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) -- A fire and emergency services station was damaged in a fire late Saturday night.
Around 11 p.m. Monroe County Emergency Services Station 10, located at 50 Evans Road in Smarr, was significantly damaged, and a firefighter was injured during the extinguishing efforts.
When MCES firefighters arrived at the scene, the station was engulfed in flames. As firefighters attempted to put out the blaze, a portion of the roof collapsed, causing the firefighters to retreat and alter their strategy of attack.
One firefighter, Battalion Chief Clay Walton, injured his knee while fighting the blaze and was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Crews continued to battle the fire until 2:30 a.m. on Sunday and will be monitoring the scene for at least the remainder of the weekend.
The cause of the blaze has not been determined.
