Writer: home was not abandoned

Published 2:45 am Saturday, December 22, 2018

I am writing in response to a story that was ran in your paper, on Jan. 30, 2018.

The story was about a house fire at 214 Allen Ave. in

Andalusia. It was reported in your article, this property was

abandoned. This statement was not correct, D3 LLC is the owner of that property, and has been for the past nine years

before the fire. Tax have been paid yearly and the property was for sale a month or two before the fire.

It was reported that the fire started the KITCHEN. The condition of the house suggest the house was burned with some kind of torch. Or someone splashing some type flammable substance on the walls and setting it on fire.

There is a big hole in the living room floor suggesting

maybe a torch of some kind.

I never got a written report from the State Fire Marshal.

I was never told who reported the property abandon.


I did speak to a lady in your office she said you wrote the story as it was reported.
