Sharpsburg home damaged by fire

by Wes Mayer

A Sharpsburg home was damaged by a fire early Tuesday, and Coweta County firefighters were able to rescue two dogs from the home.

Around 6:39 a.m., crews from stations 1, 3 and 12 responded the house fire on Rockland Drive and found the home 20 percent involved in flames, said Assistant Chief Mitch Coggin with the Coweta County Fire Department.

All occupants were out of the building when firefighters arrived, except for two dogs, which firefighters were able to safely remove. Crews were able to place the fire under control within 10 minutes, Coggin said, and the home suffered from about 20 percent fire damage, but the entire home was heavily damaged by smoke.

The fire appeared to have originated from the home’s garage. The cause is still under investigation, but the fire is not being considered suspicious at this time.
