A furniture store in Atholville was gutted by an early morning fire Monday.

About 15 firefighters from the Campbellton, Atholville and Val-d'Amour fire departments were called to the scene of Meubles Klomie Furniture around 3:30 a.m.

Campbellton firefighter Réjean Laplante told Radio-Canada that when crews arrived, the structure was in flames.

By 8:20 a.m., the fire was brought under control, but some units remained at the scene to deal with potential hotspots.
