Boaz Fire Chief Jeff Beck said firefighters responded to the home at 147 Willow Road at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday for reports of smoke coming from the home. 

The County Commission passed a resolution this week pledging to use the 5% administrative fee collected from the county’s fire district fees to assist the Revenue Commissioner’s office with software, hardware, personnel or other needs related to collecting the fire district fees.

It was a move apparently aimed at keeping the Commission out of a lawsuit filed against the Revenue Commissioner’s office over the collection of those fees. Two fire departments, Georgia Mountain and FourC, have sued Revenue Commissioner Michael Johnson alleging that fire district fees have not been collected properly.
