    Laura, the house is directly across the "road" from Faith Baptist Church.

    OK, kids. Doesn't ANYBODY know exactly where this residence fire took place? Obviously, WTOK doesn't, but what else is new? The old Midway Mart is a store; Suqualena is several miles down 19 North. Midway is also a Baptist church further off 19 North. Sure would be nice to find out the EXACT location of the fire, WTOK. Obviously, the volunteers knew where to go, and bless their hearts for their service and dedication. Enough cannot be said about the volunteer fire departments. They go above and beyond the call of duty---ALWAYS!

    Technically it is not Midway. The location of the fire is located at Nellieburg.

    Technically it is not Suqualena. Suqualena is approx.4 miles north of this location. The location of the fire is located at Midway.

    Research... It took three departments because that is the standard first alarm response to any working structure fire in Lauderdale County. Listened to the units on scene and they did a good job!
