Firefighters battled a fully engulfed NAPA Auto Parts building in Big Stone Gap on Monday.

Big Stone Gap Police Chief Steve Hamm said the emergency call was received at 5 p.m. Monday.

Responding were the Big Stone Gap, Valley and Norton Volunteer Fire Departments.

Firefighters were also working to protect a state ABC (Alcohol Beverage Commission) store connected to the rear of the building, Hamm said.

The NAPA Auto Parts building is located at 13 E. 5th St. South, across from the old bus station on the main drag through downtown Big Stone Gap.
