AVON: At 6:34 AM Houston County 911 Center and Ashford 911 Center at 415 Broadway. Rolling to the fire are VOLUNTEER fireman from Ashford and Lovetown.
Smoke and flames are visible. One fireman fell through the floor of the residence and being checked by Ashford Rescue.
Houston County Sheriff Department has blocked several of the streets in the Avon area.
Matt Boster is on the scene.
NOTE: Houston County Commissioner Doug Sinquefield informed me that he knows all that happens in his district. Since a fireman fell through the floor I am very sure Commissioner Sinquefield is NOT on the scene checking on the volunteer fireman who got injured.
Fire fighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to a nearby structure, The single wide mobile home was not occupied at the time of the fire. The fire fighter that fell through the floor is ok and continued to help fight the fire.
