A fire on Monday morning damaged Smiley’s Antique Mall in Micanopy. There were no injuries reported and the fire was contained to a third of the building.
The building, located at 17020 SE County Road 234, required a “dump truck operation” to bring water to the structure because of a lack of fire hydrants, according to Alachua County Fire Rescue.
The fire was under control within about an hour according to Stanley Young, a Rescue Lieutenant with Alachua County Fire Rescue who was part of the team dispatched to Smiley’s. The cause of the fire is currently unknown and under investigation.
The fire damaged almost half of Smiley's Antique Shop. Alachua County Fire Rescue still do not know the cause of the fire. @WUFTNews pic.twitter.com/wiiLfQhCqS
