Fire departments work

blazes, heat exhaustion

Bartow County and Cartersville fire departments worked several incidents.

Cartersville Fire Department Battalion Chief Ray King said Monday his department had worked a small brush fire at a ball field at Atco Park Monday afternoon. The blaze burned about a quarter acre, but no cause was known.

CFD firefighters also used a ladder truck to assist a victim of heat exhaustion off the roof of 550 MLK Jr. Drive Monday. The person had been working on the roof.

BCFD Sgt. Lisa Hahn said units were called to 50 Rockfence Circle Saturday night about 10:30 after a two-story residence caught fire.

Hahn said crews were on scene within two minutes and had the fire under control at midnight. The structure was not occupied at the time and was deemed a total loss.

Firefighters were back on scene Monday midday after Fire Marshal Bryan Cox discovered a hot spot during his investigation.

Cox said Monday evening that the area of origin was determined to be a rear screened-in porch but the exact cause remains unknown.
