Pastor saves three from Perry house fire


ID=6000643

A man with two callings in life answered them both with one split second decision, but he doesn't think he did anything extraordinary.

"It was a quick moving fire," said Daron Gray, a pastor and a Warner Robins police officer, who believes he was at the right place at the right time.

"Everything happens for a reason, and as a man of faith, God orchestrated us being there at that time at two o'clock for a wedding rehearsal."

Fire destroys home on Main Street in Perry


Perry fire fighters spent more than 6 hours Sunday afternoon at a house fire near the 1300 block of Main Street.

According to a news release from the Perry Fire Department, the fire trapped two people at the house at 1311 Main Street.

Fire Chief Joel Gray tells us people attending a wedding across the street at Forest Hill Park rescued the 2 people who were trapped in the house.

Perry's Fire Department got help from Warner Robins & Peach County to fight the fire.

The news release states nobody was hurt, and firefighters never actually went into the home because the fire was so intense when they got there.

The home was declared a total loss, and the cause of it is still undetermined.

Fire officials are still investigating to figure out where it started as well.


Perry apartment residents evicted because of building safety issues


The Perry Fire Department is giving tenants at the Crossroads Apartments until Monday night to find another home.

Fire Chief Joel Gray says the department did an inspection at 319 General Courtney Hodges Boulevard earlier this week and found safety issues that need to be corrected.

The issues were not corrected, so the apartments were condemned.

Earlier Friday, the department gave tenants two hours to evacuate the building.

That's after Chief Gray says they discovered "serious life safety and significant building code" violations through their inspections.

He couldn't go into detail, but said the building wouldn't be safe again for an extended period of time.

Tenants who have been living there for years say they're upset with the lack of notice.
