A Dadeville family is without a home following a Wednesday afternoon fire.
“We got a call out to investigate smoke on Hatcher Street,” Dadeville Fire Department chief Anthony Wilkerson said. “I walked out of the fire department and saw a large plume of black smoke. When I got here, the was fire coming out the back and sides of the house.”
Wilkerson said the homeowner tried to make an entry into the home.
“She opened the door and saw nothing but orange,” Wilkerson said.
Wilkerson said the home was a total loss, there were no injuries and the cause was under investigation.
In addition to the Dadeville Fire Department, the Jacksons Gap Volunteer Fire Department and the Camp Hill Volunteer Fire Department responded to the blaze. The American Red Cross also responded to help the family of three with its services.
