MOULTON, Ala. (WHNT) – A well-known volunteer firefighter lost much of his family’s home to fire Thursday morning in Moulton.
The home, at 105 Yarbrough Avenue, caught fire around 10 a.m. Brandon Gibson was asleep inside, and fortunately heard the smoke alarms and got out in time. He grabbed his radio and called for help.
His wife and two sons were not home at the time.
Moulton Fire Chief Ryan Jolly says Gibson and his family are renting the home and don’t have insurance. The American Red Cross has been notified.
No word yet on the cause of the fire. The house has extensive damage.
Gibson is a volunteer firefighter in Moulton, and is a three-time recipient of the city’s Volunteer Firefighter of the Year award.
