Fire: For more than 6 hours fire fighters from at least 10 different departments battled a fire at the Trading Place Flea Market on US 59 next to the Anderson Ford dealership south of Cleveland. Sean Anderson, Deputy Fire Chief for the City of Cleveland said flames were showing through most openings of the large frame structure when first units arrived. Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy James McQueen Jr. said the business owner, Gary Millican, said he’d been having electrical problems last week-end and had someone cut the power to the one building. At this point there is no cause determined. No injuries were reported. Liberty Co. Fire Marshal Jim Wilson is investigating.
