It was a busy day for public safety officials in Walton County Thursday with several fires in various different locations, including one at 212 Misty Grove Drive in Loganville that didn’t result in any injuries, but did displace a family.
“While still under investigation, the cause of the fire appears to be accidental,” said Robbie Schwartz, spokesman for the City of Loganville. “The fire started in the garage and has displaced a family of six.”
The home belonged to Michael Waters, who took to the city’s Facebook page to express his appreciation for the actions of the firefighters, including the one who rescued his dog, as well as others in the community who stepped up to help.
“This was my home. Appears the fire began in the electrical fuse box in the garage. Everyone made it out safe. Loganville fireman found our Jack Russell under a bed upstairs scared and hiding but conscious and alert,” Waters said in the comments. “Thank you to the firemen who arrived so fast and performed exceptionally. Thank you to the Red Cross who arrived quickly and made sure we had anything we needed. Thank you to all of our wonderful neighbors who stopped by with food, money, toys for the kids etc. Thank you to our church the Cross and all the members who have called and offered support. Everyone is safe, material things can always be replaced.”
