A home belonging to Henagar Mayor Lee Davis was destroyed by a fire in the early morning hours of Thursday. Henagar Fire Chief Jeff Crump said the home was empty at the time due to remodeling, which was almost finished.
Firefighters from the Henagar, Sylvania and Ider departments all responded to the location on Davis Road just inside the Henagar City Limits, shortly after 5:00am. The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office responded as well, and the Alabama State Fire Marshal was also called to the scene.
The home was considered a total loss and the fire remains under investigation.
