Albertville firefighter injured in house fire


ALBERTVILLE, Ala. – One Albertville firefighter was injured in a house fire on Wednesday afternoon.

Albertville Deputy Fire Chief Brent Ennis confirmed one of the department’s firefighters was injured while fighting the fire and taken to the University of Alabama Birmingham Burn Center.

According to the Sand Mountain Reporter, the Albertville Fire Department was called to a house fire at 889 Hustleville Road around 2 p.m.

The Albertville Fire Department (AFD) arrived to find the home engulfed in heavy flames and smoke.

Ennis said the firefighter is in good condition but did suffer serious burns, and will remain at UAB’s Burn Center through the weekend.

The owner of the house wasn’t home when the fire started but came home and discovered the fire.

The Asbury Volunteer Fire Department and the Alder Springs Volunteer Fire Departments assisted the AFD in fighting the fire.

Ennis said a State Fire Marshall will visit the scene Thursday to investigate and possibly determine a cause. The house is considered a total loss.
