Anderson firefighters said a still at a moonshine store exploded Thursday, causing a brief fire.

The explosion happened at Palmetto Moonshine at 200 W. Benson St.

Firefighters said that pressure built up in one of the vessels used in the distilling process. They said a weld on the container failed, causing a brief flash fire.

No one was injured, firefighters said.

Palmetto Moonshine has billed itself as the state's first legal moonshine distillery.
