LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) -- The cause of a house fire on McLemore Circle is under investigation. The fire began just before 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, eventually destroying the home.
Volunteer firefighters from East Limestone and Segers responded to find a large portion of the home already in ruins. According to officials, the fire appeared to be contained to the garage and second story, so crews went up on the roof to put out hot spots. But, crews had to quickly come off the roof because the structure underneath them burst into flames.
20 firefighters worked several hours to get the fire under control. The family who lives in the home is out of town.
