Fires Under Investigation

Two houses that burned in Lauderdale County early Tuesday morning are described as total losses.

Fire coordinator Clarence Butler said no one was at home when a fire on Russell-Topton Road was reported about 2:00 a.m.

About an hour later, firefighters got call to a vacant house on Harve Chatham Road in southeast Lauderdale County.

Both investigations were turned over to the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department. This is routine procedure when the cause of a fire is undetermined.
