The Sistersville Volunteer Fire Department was called to Friendly Tuesday morning shortly after 7 a.m. to fight a fire at Brent's Carryout. Though the garage portion of the building was destroyed, the department was able to stop the fire from spreading to the main part of the store. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The SVFD was assisted by St. Marys and Paden City fire departments, while Middlebourne was on standby. Pictured are Captain Jason Wayne, Assistant Chief Dave Maxwell and Stephen Wayne of the SVFD. (Photos by Phil Konopacky of SVFD)
