by Wes Mayer

The Newnan Fire Department responded to a small house fire on LaGrange Street south of Boone Drive Wednesday night, and firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and ventilate the home within an hour.

Fire crews in Command 5 and Engines 1, 3 and 5 were dispatched to the house fire at 229 LaGrange St. around 10:46 p.m.

According to Battalion Chief Jeffrey Patterson, units arrived within five minutes, found smoke throughout the home and the attic, and located the fire in a storage room attached to the home by a breezeway. Firefighters then extinguished the fire and removed the burning materials from the home.

Fire personnel checked the home with thermal imaging equipment and ventilated the home with a smoke ejector device. When no hot spots were discovered in the home, it was turned back over to the owner, and firefighters left the scene around 11:45 p.m.
