Three people escape house fire in Hueytown

HUEYTOWN, Ala. (WIAT) — Three people are safe after a fire destroys a home in Hueytown. It happened around 6:00 Friday night.

Hueytown Fire Captain David McKee says there wasn’t much crews could do when they arrived except keep the flames from spreading and burning nearby homes. The home is a total loss.

Capt. McKee says the cooler temperatures at night helped fight back the flames. He says with the severe drought conditions, people need to be aware and stay alert.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The Red Cross is now helping the people living at the home.
