MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — UPDATE (6:22 p.m. 9/8/21): Mobile Fire-Rescue is working to determine the cause of a two-alarm fire at an unoccupied house on Marian Drive.
At about 3:08 p.m. Wednesday, Mobile Fire-Rescue Department companies were dispatched to the 2000 block of Marian Drive for reports of a house fire. When crews arrived, they saw heavy flames and thick, black smoke billowing from a two-story home. Active power lines were also down in the front yard, which added additional risk to responding firefighters.
Search and rescue teams swept through every room of the home, confirming that no occupants were trapped inside. Neighbors reported that the home had been unoccupied for about six months.
At about 4 p.m., crews requested a second-alarm response to assist with firefighting efforts, as flames continued to spread through the large structure.
