The home of Chris and Shirley Brannon on 17th Avenue in Haleyville was heavily damaged by fire around 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. The family was able to escape the home without injury and suspects the fire started due to lightning from storms in the area; however, the official cause of the fire is under investigation. Three vehicles were also destroyed in this fire. The Haleyville, Delmar, Bear Creek, and Pebble Fire Departments responded to the scene to fight the blaze, and the Haleyville Police Department and Winston County Sheriff's Department provided scene security.
