 Tuesday, October 8, 2019


A fire on Ono Island Saturday, October 5, 2019 destroyed two homes, cars and a boat. Nobody was at home at the time, but one firefighter was injured. This is the third time in just a few months fire has burned structures to the ground in that area.

Smoke could be seen for miles as two homes on Ono Island burned. By the time first responders stationed at the Ono Island Fire Station arrived, one home on Marlin Key Drive was fully involved, and the fire had spread to the house next door.

“We had two, what we call exposures on either side of the structures involved in the fire which we had to maintain. That’s where we had to set up our line of defense and were actually able to save both of those homes on both sides,” explained Orange Beach Fire Chief, Mike Kimmerling.

In all, two homes, five vehicles and a boat were destroyed.
