LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Fire has destroyed an over 100-year-old home in Limestone County.

Piney Chapel and Owens volunteer firefighters responded to the call just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night. The house was located on Cross Key Road just west of Piney Chapel Road.

Upon arrival, firefighters said the house was fully involved. The owner of the home lives next door. He said he was remodeling the home, which is vacant, and was working in the home's attic a few hours before the fire.

The house is over 100 years old, but the fire was so large, firefighters could not save it, instead working just to contain the flames.

No one was hurt, but the home is a total loss.

Owens and Piney Chapel firefighters had to return to the scene later that morning after the fire rekindled.
