RE: STRUCTURE FIRE
612 Sparta Hwy
Eatonton GA 31024
(Putnam County, Ga., December 23, 2014) – Putnam County firefighters were dispatched to a call for help needed in the 600 block of Sparta Hwy just before 3:00pm when the occupant reported seeing flames. On arrival, crews found a single-family home with heavy flames rapidly spreading. Fire crews stopped fire progression and contained fire damage to that end of the home. Heavy smoke damaged the entire home, two pets were lost due to the smoke also.
No occupant or PCFR Staff injuries reported as a result of the fire.
PCFR had 8 apparatus & 21 personnel respond. Mutual Aid was received from Eatonton Fire Department, Putnam EMS, PCSO & GA Fire Marshals Office.
The fire was found to have originated in the basement area of the home. The cause appears to have been electrical in nature.
“Working smoke alarms save lives, check them monthly, one in every bedroom and any other sleeping areas of your home. Have 2 escape routes planned and practiced!”
