Several roads in the Main Street area are closed due to concerns with public safety and firefighting equipment on the roads.

There are no immediate indications of injuries, as the fires started early Sunday when the buildings were likely unoccupied.

Historical books and memorabilia have been removed from the Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society gift shop and library due to the threat of fire to this building which does not appear to have suffered significant damage.
