Albany, GA – One Injured in Apartment Fire on Patridge Dr 

Albany, GA (June 7, 2022) – Around 9:40 a.m. on Tuesday morning, June 7, one person was injured in an apartment fire in Albany. 

According to Albany officials, the incident took place at 2800 Patridge Drive. A neighbor saw smoke coming out of the apartment and immediately went over to help. They found that the disabled resident who lived there was still inside and brought them over to a window until fire crews could help. 

Paramedics and several other local responders were immediately dispatched to help those in need. The victim, who has not yet been identified, was injured in the fire. The party was rushed to the hospital for treatment, though their condition is not yet known. 

The area was blocked off for an extended period of time following the fire. It took fire crews about 150 gallons of water to bring the fire under control, which was completely out by 10:10 a.m. 

No further details have been released. The investigation into the circumstances leading up to the fire continues. 

We offer our warmest thoughts to the party injured in this fire with hopes of a speedy recovery. 

Fire Accidents in Georgia

Fires break out in the state of Georgia every single day. These incidents happen in both residential and commercial areas. Fires are typically brought under control very quickly, but in some cases, they blaze out of control. This means that there could be a risk to those inside their homes at the time. On average, it is estimated that approximately 27 people are injured out of every 1,000 residential fires. There are many serious injuries that stem from fires, including the following: 

  • Smoke inhalation injuries
