A Sylacauga officer and his family lost everything to a home fire Monday.

Police say Officer Adam Grantham was on duty when he received word his home was on fire and within minutes the house was fully involved. While Grantham and his family are safe, the home was a total loss.

Police Chief Kelly Johnson says the home was paid in full and did not have any insurance on the property.

The department is offering multiple ways for people to donate to Grantham and his family as they recover. Click here to learn more.


On April 1st, 2019, Sylacauga Police Department officer, Adam Grantham, was on duty when he received notification that his house was on fire. Within minutes, the house was fully involved and flames were seen through the roof. Despite the fire department's best efforts, Officer Grantham and his wife watched their home, which housed their family of four, burn to the ground along with all of their belongings except for what was on their persons. Everything material was a total loss, but the family of four was safe.

The home was paid in full and did not currently have any insurance on the property. Now, Officer Grantham and his family must shoulder the burden of the total costs to rebuild their lives unless we come together to help. If you would like to give to Officer Grantham and his family, we have a few opportunities available to give. There is a local account at Heritage South Credit Union in Sylacauga, Alabama, where donations can be made by asking to deposit into the account for “Donations for Adam Grantham” during their regularly scheduled business hours. We are also accepting donations locally at the Sylacauga Police Department Records Office during regularly scheduled business hours for items or monetary donations in person. Lastly, there is a verified “GoFundMe” account set up for the family at: https://www.gofundme.com/new-home-for-officergrantham-spd.
