Hale County families displaced after fire

Posted: Updated:

In Hale County, a fire displaced two families Thursday afternoon. Flames broke out around 3:00 p.m. at a home near East 5th and Avenue F. Crews from Petersburg, Abernathy, Idalou, New Deal, and West Carlisle fought to contain the fire from spreading to other homes.

"Petersburg did one heck of a knockdown on the fire. They got is under control, because with today's wind, this could have easily spread into multiple structures," Abernathy Volunteer Fire Chief Kelly Vandygriff said. 

Flames damaged one home, and a neighboring house had smoke and water damage. The Red Cross reports that both families are staying in different locations at this time.  What caused the fire is still under investigation.
