They got the call just after
eight o-clock last night behind Hooters
on Williamson Road.

Ten units were called out to
battle what turned out to be a small
blaze.

Fire officials say the building
is a popular spot for homeless people
to sleep.

Authorities thought at first they
might find some people inside, but they
found no one.

IT WON OVERWHELMING SUPPORT IN THE
