HC Fire Respond To Several Fires This Week

Cold weather could be responsible for a number of fires in Haralson County this week.
Haralson County Fire crews responded to five fires since Sunday.
Fire Chief Brian Walker says four of the blazes have been ruled as accidental, while one is being investigated as arson.
 The most recent fire destroyed a home at around 2:00 this morning, on Old Hamilton Mills Road off of Shedd Road; apparently caused by the fire place.
Walker says another fire earlier in the week was caused by “ashes being dumped.” He says the fire was started in an area that was typically secure and had been used for ashes before, “but the wind must have picked up,” sparking a fire and damaging the home.
