Two teens, father killed in Eight Mile house fire
EIGHT MILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
Two teenage girls and their father, Michael A. Allen, have been killed after a fire rampaged through their home on Weisbrod Drive in Eight Mile.
The Prichard Police Department (PPD) says they received the call just before 1:00 am on Sunday.
Aylesha Allen, the girls' mother and Michael Allen's wife, were able to escape from the home with two of their daughters, who were 8 and 13.
Lieutenant Robert Martin with PPD says they do not wish to release the names of the two teenagers because the girls were minors.
Lt. Martin says the grandfather of the girls, who both attended Blount High School, shared that one of the girls was an honor student with a scholarship awaiting her future.
PPD says the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
