Local News

HUEYTOWN, Ala. (WIAT) –UPDATE: The Hueytown Fire Marshall provided CBS 42 with more information about Friday morning’s fire that razed a local Captain D’s location.

According to Hueytown Fire and Rescue, a burglar alarm call came into the station around 3:25 a.m.

When police arrived to the restaurant chain location, they saw flames coming from the building.

Hueytown Fire and Rescue responded to the scene and believes the flickering flames triggered the motion sensor, causing the burglar alarm to go off.

The fire marshall states that there was no fire alarm in the building, adding that buildings of that size do not require one.

The fire jumped into the attic and quickly burned the roof, causing it to collapse.

The building was empty at the time of the fire and is considered a total loss.

UPDATE: Hueytown Police report that Allison Bonnett Memorial Drive is back open.

CBS 42 is on the scene of a Hueytown fire on the 3000 block of Allison Bonnet Memorial Drive.

Hueytown police have diverted traffic from the area as firefighters work to fully extinguish the flames at the Captain D’s location.

The building is considered a total loss.

We are working to gather more information on the cause of the fire.
