Gainesville, GA – Bobby Ector Killed in Fatal House Fire on McConnell Dr

Gainesville, GA (March 18, 2022) – On Thursday night, March 17, one person was killed in a fatal house fire that took place in Gainesville. 

According to local officials, the incident took place before 11:20 p.m. when a fire started in a home on McConnell Drive. When fire crews arrived at the scene of the fire, they found a mobile home fully engulfed in smoke and flames. An individual came up to fire crews and said that they believed an individual was still inside the home. 

Fire crews were able to gain entrance into the home, where they found the individual inside. In the meantime, other crews were working to extinguish the fire so that they could assist those in need. 

Paramedics and numerous other responders were immediately dispatched to the scene. The individual who was inside the home was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. He has since been identified as 60-year-old Bobby Ector. 

It took fire crews an extended period of time to bring the fire fully under control. 

No further details have been released but the investigation remains ongoing. Police will update as more information as it is available. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
