The third fire in three weeks of abandoned Haleyville houses has raised suspicions as to the origins of these fires. Sunday afternoon, September 8, the Haleyville Fire Department was dispatched at 3:08 p.m. to a structure fire on Highway 13 South, just across from H&R Block. HFD quickly called for help, mostly in manpower to fight the fire. Area Fire Departments including Bear Creek, Delmar, Craft, Pebble, Lynn, Hackleburg, Winfield, Brilliant and Ashridge responded. The building was originally the Boshell Chiropractic Clinic, then the Reece apartments. For quite some time the building has been vacant and empty. The structure was a total loss. The fire is under investigation by the Haleyville Fire Department.
