Firefighters from several agencies battled a very large warehouse fire in Attalla Monday afternoon.

According to Pleasant Grove Volunteer Fire Department, roughly 65 agencies were at the scene to control the fire. The dispatch center says fire hydrants in the area were completely tapped out, so the road was shut down for several hours to allow crews to refill.

Attalla Mayor Larry Means says firefighters believe all workers at the warehouse are accounted for.
