MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Firefighters from four Morgan County volunteer fire departments rushed to a house on Highway 36 Monday afternoon.

Flames were already coming through the roof when they arrived. Initial reports indicated the homeowner was still inside the burning house, but those reports turned out to be false.

Flames gutted the inside of the house destroying most of the couple’s belongings. Firefighters on the scene said the blaze appears to be suspicious in nature, but investigators have not yet determined exactly where or what caused the fire.
