Firefighters battle house fire on Ryland Pike in Madison County

Structure fire pm Ryland Pike

MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Madison County firefighters are working hard to put out a fire on Ryland Pike at Everett Road in Madison County on Friday morning.

Investigators tell us the call came in around 4 a.m., and at least four fire units responded to the scene.

No one was inside the home at the time of the fire, because the family is on vacation.

Investigators tell us the house has a metal roof, which poses a challenge for firefighters because it holds in the heat and caused the fire to spread instead of keeping it in a central location.

Crews are working on putting out hotspots now.
