A body was found in the rubble of a burned-out home in Athens, Limestone County. Crews first arrived on scene at the home on Pruitt Street early Monday morning. There was heavy smoke and fire coming from the home. The remains were discovered after the fire was extinguished.
Sherry Carthern told us she was in shock to hear her Aunt's house caught fire on Monday because she had just been there the day before and everything was normal.
"I couldn't believe it. it was just like yesterday. I come by everyday. Every morning to give her her medicine," she said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. An autopsy is needed to identify the body.
