Fire Guts Williford’s Blacktop Stop

AKIN – The community of Akin and others are rallying around Williford’s Blacktop Stop after the building was gutted by a fire Wednesday.

There is currently no indication of the cause of the fire or the extent of the damage done. A post from the Southern Illinois Fire Incidents Facebook page stated that Thompsonville sent a crew to fight the blaze.

According to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page, the owners are “getting it all figured out” but thanked the community for support.
