Nobody Hurt in Wednesday Fire

Nobody was hurt in a fire Wednesday night on Robin Place in Toccoa.

Toccoa Fire Chief Tommy Ayers said that fire crews responded to a Housing Authority unit on Robin Place just before 9 p.m. Wednesday for a structure fire.

Ayers said the crews were able to contain the fire to a single dwelling, which did suffer heavy damage.

He added that the fire appears to have started on the couch in the living room.

The investigation into the fire continues and at this time, the official cause has not been determined.

However, Ayers said the fire is not considered suspicious.

Elsewhere, Ayers said a space heater was to blame for a house fire last week on South Alexander Street in Toccoa.

That fire occurred just before 12:30 p.m. on November 14 at a home on South Alexander, just off of Currahee Street.

Ayers said that fire started in the living room and the home suffered heavy heat and smoke damage.

Nobody was injured in that fire either.
