Fire destroys Davenport Transfer moving & storage company

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus firefighters responded to Davenport Transfer Company around 8:00 Thursday night. Intense flames were coming from the right front corner of the building when firefighters arrived. The left side looks to be intact.

The owner said about 80% of the moving and storage facility located on 10th Avenue sustained smoke damage--mostly to the interior.

Firefighters worked quickly to extinguish the blaze which took only a few minutes.  Plumes of smoke could be seen bellowing high into the air.

No one was inside the facility when the fire started.   The call came through 911 from a fire alarm.  Firefighters say household goods valued at thousands of dollars were destroyed.

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire; they added, it appears to be accidental.
