Weekend fire consumes local bed and breakfast

The Weathers' Place Bed and Breakfast is located on Alabama Highway 137 in Valley Head.

The Weathers’ Place Bed and Breakfast built in 1853 burned Sunday night at around 8:20 p.m.

Valley Head Fire Chief Dustin Burt said the Weathers’ Place Bed and Breakfast was fully involved when they arrived at the premises on Alabama Highway 137 Sunday night.

According to Burt, there were no casualties, and no one was inside.

Burt said firefighters from Valley Head, Mentone, Hammondville, and Henagar volunteer fire departments responded to the fire.

According to Burt, he and a fire investigator were set to visit the remains of the building on Monday. Burt said it will be difficult to determine the cause of the fire due to the age of the building.
