Atlanta, GA (April 13, 2022) – Around 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning, April 12, a man was seriously injured in a house fire in Atlanta.
According to Atlanta Police, the fire broke out in the early morning hours in a home at 500 Chappell Road. When fire crews arrived at the scene, they found that flames were shooting out of the front of the house. Fire crews discovered that a man was living in the home and pulled him out to safety. Other firefighters worked to bring the fire under control. When they were exiting the home, three firefighters crashed through the floors and into a crawl space. They had to be rescued and also pulled to safety.
Paramedics and several other local responders were rushed to the scene to help those in need. The man who was located inside the home was given emergency aid at the scene.
