A fire that started early on Wednesday morning in a sizable home in the City of South Fulton has left two family members dead and five more in hospitals. Mother and child are still unaccounted for. Two bodies were discovered in the rubble on Wednesday, according to firefighters. Although the identities of those victims are unknown, authorities have said that both of them are adults. On the 7000 block of Oswego Trail Road, a fire broke out. Around 4:42 a.m., according to Lt. Eric Jackson, his department received a 911 call. The house was completely in flames when emergency personnel arrived.
According to Jackson, South Fulton police got on the site before fire crews and attempted to enter the house but were unsuccessful due to the intensity of the flames. Five persons, according to the department, have been taken to the hospital where they are in stable condition. A private vehicle took two of them. The man who lived there told journalist that he tried desperately to get his family out of the house but was unable to do so because the flames were simply too powerful. According to Jerome Harris, the fire was already under way on the second floor of the house when he awoke to the sound of glass smashing. “All I can tell you is, with those flames, I was trying to get people out of there, my family out of there,” Harris said.
Harris stated that he made a valiant effort to reach the bedrooms on the second story in order to notify his loved ones. “I get to the top of the steps, that was as far as I could get, because the flames were going through the roof,” Harris said. The fact that so many individuals lived at the house, according to neighbor Phillip Horton, makes the scenario overall awful. Although a family member said that at least one of the victims was a child, firefighters have not yet recognized the four people who are still missing. “Keep us in your prayers, that’s all you can do,” Harris said.
