Atlanta, GA - On January 25th, Atlanta Fire Rescue Communications alerted companies to Martin Luther King Jr. Drive for a residential house fire. Engines 15 and 14 arrived to a one-story home. Firefighters were met out front by the homeowner advising that the dryer was on fire. AFRD firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and began releasing companies. Company 14’s fire apparatus operator was able to keep one of the children warm by loaning him his firefighter jacket until the home was released back to the owners.
