Fire at Rose Manor UPDATED

Thursday, July 12, 11:22 am, the Haleyville Fire Department was dispatched to a fire at the Rose Manor Assisted Living Facility on Highway 195, a block south of the Lakeland Hospital. A grease fire in the kitchen which left a lot of smoke coupled with water from the sprinkler system forced an evacuation of the residents. Reportedly, the staff had all the residents out of the building in less than 3 minutes.

NACOG busses were used to transport approximately 15 people to the Lakeland hospital where they were met with friendly personnel who quickly provided a safe and cool place to stay. No one was injured and it was good the residents had a great place to go and only one block away at the Lakeland hospital. The residents returned to Rose Manor Friday afternoon.
