Alton firefighters were joined by their counterparts from Wood Diver and East Alton to fight a blaze at a business on Broadway around midday today (Friday). The fire was reported at about 11:00am at 2625 E. Broadway, commonly known as Industrial Machine Sales. That is located just east of the Main Street intersection.

Both directions of E. Broadway were closed for an hour or so as a precaution, as there were reportedly flammables in the building. No injuries were reported.
