Leroy, AL (WKRG)
If you see a fire around the Leroy, Wagarville area, don’t be alarmed. The Airway Motel near the Creek Bank Restuarant is being intentionally burned down.
“[I] just found out is is a control burn,” said Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer via iMessage Sunday morning. “They are intentionally burning it.” While it may seem a bit unusual the sheriff says this is a legal demotion technique because it is controlled. A viewer sent us an image of the fire. In it, you can see the roof has already been taken clean off of the structure.
