Collapse occurs at :16 into the video above.
The Henry County fire marshal’s office has started its investigation into what caused the massive blaze at the old Bassett Furniture Superior Lines yard.
Investigators believe the fire started in an old building that was one of several on the property being demolished.
Officials estimated firefighters poured 500,000 gallons of water on the fire Thursday night and into Friday morning.
The fire happened right beside the rubble of a November fire at the Bassett Warehouse that was ruled arson. Billows of smoke surrounded the scene Friday. But when crews were called out Thursday, they say much of the vacant building was consumed by flames. Eyewitnesses reported seeing smoke from almost twenty miles away. This was a demolition site already because of that previous fire, and for months, crews have been removing rubble from the site.
