A 57-year-old man with severe burns covering most of his body from the neck down has been airlifted to Vanderbilt after a fire in Ardmore.
The fire call came in about 10:52 a.m. to a residence on Hobbs Loop in Admore, said Stephen Young, Limestone County Sheriff's Office spokesman.
He said Ardmore, Elkmont and Oak Grove fire departments, as well as the sheriff's office, responded.
The State Fire Marshal's Office has investigators trying to determine the cause of the fire.
Some people WAAY 31 talked to are praying for their neighbor who was burned. They say the community is tight-knit and will do what they can during this time.
"We never knew exactly how bad the situation was," Jeremiah Johnson, who lives in the neighborhood, said.
The Limestone County Sheriff's Office has not released the name of the victim.
The department says there is no external damage to the house. There is just damage on the inside.
