Newton County, GA – Five-year-old Forester Sanders was excited to see the firefighters walking on his property. Along with police officers, firefighters were his heroes with their big red trucks and prestigious uniforms. Never mind that the members of the Newton County Fire Services were there because a fire destroyed part of his home, Sanders still thought the sight of them was “awesome.” On the morning of Jan. 5, five units from the Newton County Fire Services, along with mutual aid from the city of Covington responded to a fire at the Sanders’ home on Starsville Road. Crews on scene worked quickly to extinguish the fire but it wasn’t just the rush of water that caught Trey Sanders’ attention that day.Read More
