    I hope the fire marshall (or police) investigate the cause of this fire very closely…(I am not insinuiating that they havent, or won’t.) There was another fire in East Limestone just a few weeks ago that also happened in the middle of the night. The (other) house was also unoccupied, with the electricity turned off at the residence. As a long-time resident of East Limestone, I find this odd… Hopefully, it is just a strange coincidence

  • There was a 5 acre field fire in the Toney / Elkmont area off Bethel rd. and Old School House last night. 100 ft. flames in a massive land fire. I have not seen it reported on any news channel.

    This house had just been remodeled after punks broke in trashed the place and painted gang symbols on the wall. I know the owner of this house.
