The state fire marshal’s office on Friday confirmed it is involved in an investigation involving a structure fire in the Andalusia city limits.

Alabama State Fire Marshal Ed Paulk has confirmed that state investigators are involved in a joint investigation with local law enforcement concerning a recent structure fire in Andalusia.
