Alexandria, already facing its third day without electricity, is now dealing with a structure fire, according to a bystander report.

Flames and smoke could be seen in the town before 6:00 this morning.

Beyond the challenge of having no electricity, firefighters face a challenge just getting around the city, where more snow fell overnight following two days of ice and snow from a spring storm that is forecast to finally let up today.

The Daily Republic will report more about the fire as information becomes available.
