Multiple agencies responded to the deadly fire Monday at the Jackson County Park.
Several recovery boats were out on the water all day long, working to recover people and boats.
Scottsboro Fire Chief Gene Necklaus told WAAY 31 they are checking every piece of debris in the water to make sure everyone is accounted for. He also said they will continue to search for people for the next 3 to 4 days.

Morgan County Dive Squad, Rosalie, Scottsboro Fire and Rescue and Scottboro Police, Jackson County EMA, and state troopers were just some of the agencies that responded to the scene.
