Lamar Hall, fire chief of the Burkville Volunteer Fire Department said the fire call went out shortly after 7 p.m. and that Burkville assisted the Hayneville Volunteer Fire Department with the fire.
He said the home located at 58 North Commerce Street was owned by Sam Gordon of Hayneville and located at 600 feet north of the intersection of Alabama Highway 21 off Alabama Highway 97.
