WOODVILLE – On the morning of Thursday, Jan. 25, firefighters with the Woodville Volunteer Fire Department were paged out to a commercial building fire at 305 West Bluff Street, according to Woodville Fire Chief Alan Gartner.

When the firefighters arrived, they found heavy flames coming from the west side of the Walling Signs building, and had dispatch tone out assistance from Colmesneil and Ivanhoe fire departments.

Along with the three firefighting agencies, Tyler County Sheriff’s Office and Woodville Police Department were also on the scene for assistance.

At present, the lightning storm that took place throughout the early morning is being cited as the cause for the fire.

Gartner said that they made an aggressive stop on the fire, and it was put out at 5:30 a.m., and all of the emergency personnel were released and went back to service.

A post from the business stated that they wished to thank the Woodville VFD and everyone in the community who has reached out and offered assistance in any way. They are working on obtaining new equipment and opening a temporary new location.
