Fire Marshal Investigating House Fire In Alamo
The State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating a December 1 fire in Alamo that gutted a one-story residence.
Martha Floyd was able to escape the blaze that broke out about 4 p.m. at her home at 63 Broad Street, but fell at the scene and was transported by air ambulance to an area hospital. A man reported to be her grandson received slight injuries to one arm as he assisted Mrs. Floyd in exiting the house, but he refused medical transportation and was treated at the scene.
“Electrical issues cannot be ruled out, but the official cause of the fire has not yet been determined,” said Alamo Volunteer Fire Department Chief Brian O’Quinn. Reportedly, the house was fully engulfed by flames when firefighters arrived at the scene.
Alamo firefighters were assisted by fire departments from Spring Hill and Stuckey, as well as Wheeler County EMA Director Steve Adams.
