BREAKING NEWS: Fire Destroys Home on Monday; Wreck Requires Transport on Tuesday

ZEBULON - Volunteer personnel from the Pike County Fire Department have been on the scene of several incidents since Sunday morning. Deputies and emergency personnel have been on the scene as well.

Two of these incidents have been fire related. "Fire Claims Home on Pine Valley Road on Sunday Morning" is at the top of the home page at www.PikeCountyTimes.com.

Fire on Cook Road on Monday

According to Anita Neath, Public Information Officer for the Pike County Fire Department, at approximately 6:30 pm, Monday on December 10, Pike County Fire Department personnel responded to reported structure fire at 2448 Cook Rd.

Upon arrival, personnel found the structure was fully involved. Personnel from our volunteer fire department began a defensive attack. All stations were represented with personnel and or apparatus.

The home was a total loss. Both occupants were transported for smoke inhalation, and an undetermined number of family pets may have perished in the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Approximately 27,000 gallons of water were used to put out the fire, and fire fighters were able to return home a little after 11 p.m. last night.

Wreck in Molena on Tuesday

Around 7:17 a.m. this morning, deputies and emergency personnel responded to a call about an overturned 18 wheeler just outside of Molena. The vehicle, driven by 26 year old Dareall Harvard of Conyers, was traveling westbound on Highway 109 West toward Molena when, for an unknown reason, the vehicle went off the road in front of Mount Olive Church and overturned.

The driver's leg was pinned under the cab of the truck, and the cab had to be lifted off of him so he could be transported to an area hospital for treatment. According to Major David Neal of the Pike County Sheriff's Office, the initial investigation showed that Mr. Harvard did not appear to be wearing his seatbelt.

Volunteers from the Pike County Fire Department responded to the scene as well as deputies from the Pike County Sheriff's Office and emergency service personnel. Two heavy wreckers were used to remove the cab from on top of the victim's leg as well as righting the cab and trailer from where it overturned.
