MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) - A home on Leaning Pines Drive in Morgan County is severely damaged after a fire that started in the chimney spread to the attic.

The fire caused the chimney to collapse.  When that happened, the roof collapsed too.  That is when all the firefighters left the home to fight the fire from the outside.

Four different fire departments responded to the home to help put out the fire.

The Red Cross has been called to the home to help the displaced family.
