Walton County Fire Rescue, with the assistance of Social Circle Fire Department, responded to a fire overnight that caused heavy damage to a home at 454 Ga. Highway 11 in Walton County overnight.
“Upon fire department arrival there was a heavy fire in a bedroom and in the attic of the house,” WCFR Battalion Chief Craig League said. “Firefighters were delayed from getting water to the fire by an out of service fire hydrant near the scene.”

“Red Cross is providing assistance to that person,” League said.
The cause is undetermined at the this time, League said.
