There was a residential fire at 4958 County Highway 34 Monday evening around 8:00 p.m. at the home of Tim Hyde. Despite efforts from firemen on the scene, the home was completely destroyed, and reportedly the victim of the fire was Timmy "Tim" Hyde, 49 of Haleyville. The name of the deceased was not released until confirmed by autopsy.
Weather conditions made it extremely difficult for officials on the scene. Many emergency vehicles were stuck in the mud on the driveway leading to the home. Both Ward's Wrecker Service and Lyle's Wrecker Service were on the scene to assist throughout the night. The Haleyville Fire Department, Bear Creek Fire Department, Marion County Sheriff's Department, Haleyville Police Department, Bear Creek Police Department, and the Alabama Fire Marshal's Office responded to the scene. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Alabama Fire Marshal's Office and the Marion County Sheriff's Department.
