Talladega County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Jimmy Kilgore said the storage building was in the northeastern corner of the jail.
“One of the corrections officers was on patrol and saw the smoke and called the Fire Department,” Kilgore said.
He said the Talladega Fire Department and Alabama Power responded.
The cause of the fire has not been determined.
“It was a total loss,” Fire Chief Danny Warwick said. “Upon our arrival, the structure was fully involved. It was under control within an hour-and-a-half.”
Warwick said the fire is under investigation.
