Tenant unaccounted for after Dawson County fire later found unharmed

By Alyson Shields Reporter

No one was injured in a single-wide mobile home fire on Red Pine Drive in Dawsonville Monday.

Dawson County Emergency Services found the home with heavy flames when they arrived just after 5:25 p.m. A press release from the agency said a male tenant at the home was unaccounted for.

Crews made an aggressive interior attack, according to the release, to not only control the fire but to also perform search and rescue. The man was eventually located at another residence not associated with the fire. It was under control by 6 p.m.

The cause of the fire is not yet known. Dawson County Fire Marshal, Sheriff's Office, State Fire Marshal and Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are all investigating the fire.
