LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – Multiple fire units responded to an early-morning house fire on Hall Road Wednesday morning.
The fire, at 17685 Hall Road, started around 4:00 Wednesday morning.
Fire crews say initially told us the house was a total loss. Now they feel as though much of the house may have been spared, but it depends on the extent of smoke damage throughout the house.
The family who lives in the home got out safely.
Two firefighters were taken from the scene with ankle injuries. Firefighters tell us the area is pretty slick and the firefighters slipped.
Firefighters believe the fire started in the garage. The garage has since collapsed and two vehicles were destroyed in the fire.
The Piney Chapel Fire Chief tells us they were challenged on the scene of the fire because a nearby hydrant was frozen when they arrived. The ground around the house has also frozen befauce of the amount of water they used.
Oak Grove, East Limestone and Piney Chapel Fire Departments all responded to the fire.
