Macon, GA - On January 20th, Macon-Bibb County Fire Department was alerted to 2430 Riverside Drive for a building on fire. The 911 communications center received several calls reporting flames coming from the roof of the building, as it sits near I-75. The first arriving companies reported heavy fire showing from the building and immediately began setting up aerial operations. Macon-Bibb firefighters worked throughout the night to extinguish the fire and to standby into the morning hours in case hot spots flared up. The structure was the Children's Sesame Daycare, but it had been closed for many years. The fire is currently under investigation.
