A Newnan home and its surrounding area was flooded Monday following heavy rain in the city.

Around 2:52 p.m., authorities with the Newnan Fire Department, the Newnan Police Department and the Housing Authority responded to Hollis Heights between Third and Fourth streets in reference to flooding. According to firefighters with Engine 3, units arrived to find one side of a home was flooded, and the homeowner was reporting flooding inside her home. Firefighters were unable to assist the homeowner in removing her furniture, but they were able to help her out of the area.

According to the fire department, the flooding was caused after the culvert became stopped up and couldn’t handle the heavy water flow. The fire department put up caution tape around the flooded area to keep pedestrians from walking through the water and injuring themselves.
