Gurney Manufacturing Fire Investigation Continues

Contact: John S. Robison, State Fire Marshal


Four juveniles are currently being questioned regarding the fire that destroyed the Gurney Manufacturing building in downtown Prattville Tuesday night September 10th.

Investigators with the Prattville Fire Department, Prattville Police Department and Alabama State Fire Marshals Office spent most of today questioning the four regarding the fire. At this time no charges have been filed, however, investigators believe charges will be filed Wednesday following an examination of the scene.

Prior to today investigators have been unable to examine the scene due to heat from the smoldering fire.
