Christmas night fire destroys Decatur family’s home
DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – A Christmas night fire destroyed a Decatur home. The fire broke out around 11:30 p.m. at a house in the 500 block of Church Street.
Fortunately, the couple who lived there was not home at the time. They were visiting relatives across town.
It took crews about 30 minutes to get the flames under control. They had to block off Church Street while they worked.
The street has since reopened. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
