GURLEY, Ala. (WHNT) – There is a structure fire at 789 Little Cove Rd. Gurley and Keel Mtn Fire Depts are on the scene.

A lightning strike from Wednesday night caused wires in the house to short and become dangerous.  The wires smoldered for approximately 24 hours, until they caught fire.  The homeowners smelled smoke and immediately called the fire department.

Fire fighters cut power to the house, put the fire out, then made the house safe.
