Rockmart Police Department –
The Rockmart Police Department released the following statement on Wednesday:
“We are currently investigating a residential fire that occurred at 808 Jones Avenue at/around 4:30 A.M. on July 12, 2022.
We are asking for help from anyone in the vicinity of north Jones Avenue or Hunter Street that may have video surveillance at/about 4:20 – 4:35 A.M. to contact our office.
Thankfully the residence was an unoccupied building and no one was injured; however, this does not lessen the danger it offered to our law enforcement and firefighters that responded to the fire.
Due to the efforts of your ROCKMART FIRE DEPARTMENT, the fire was contained to solely the unoccupied residence and the fire department was able to prevent any damage to the surrounding homes.
The attached photo was submitted to our department and shows a person in the area just prior to the fire being reported.”
