Leroy Motel Fire Intentional Burn


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.
