Siloam, Ward, and Cuba Fire responded to a structure fire in the 6000 block of Alabama Highway 17.  Chief Pendergrass was first to arrive on scene and reported that the structure was well involved.  Siloam Engine 1 arrived on scene and lines were put in action on the fire.  Siloam Tanker and Ward Engine 1 arrived to provide water supply for overhaul operations.  The home was not completely burned down by the fire, but the home was considered a complete loss.  Firefighter Breland of Ward Fire, who is also a ARC Volunteer, assisted the occupants with lodging and other items.  Units were dispatched back to the scene in the late evening hours for a mattress that rekindled.

Shortly after attack lines were placed in action.
