Sunday Morning Fire Destroys Interior of Spring Hill Home

Cullman e911 dispatched multiple emergency responses agencies to fight a house fire in the Spring Hill community this morning.

Firefighters from West Point Fire Department were the first on the scene. They encountered visible flames and smoke coming from a front bedroom in a rural house in the West Point Fire coverage area.

There was a concern at the location early on that an occupant of the dwelling might still be inside amongst the flames and smoke. An Air Evac medical helicopter landed nearby as a precaution in case transportation of a burn victim was needed.

West Point personnel were able to rapidly knock down the worst of the fire as mutual aid support arrived from Logan Fire & Rescue as well as Bethsadia Volunteer Fire Department.

Primary and secondary searches of the home revealed NO human occupants in the house allowing the medical helicopter to depart the scene.

Also, involved in this response were Sergeant Drew Shelnutt of the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office and a medical team from Cullman EMS. In the end, there were no physical injuries to occupants or firefighters.

Logan Fire Chief Toby Bates had these thoughts:

“West Point did a great job knocking this fire down quickly. Their work saved the exterior structure of this house. Unfortunately, the interior has taken serious smoke and water damage as well as fire involvement in some areas.”
