        The Barn Don Fuller built himself is now a scorched mess, and the cows pick over what little is left of the 400 bales of hay Fuller was storing for the winter.
        Just when he thought his cattle business had gone up in smoke, his luck changed
        "After the fire Monday, I started getting calls Tuesday and Wednesday, people calling wanting to donate hay," said Fuller.
        Fuller said at least 20 other farmers so far have offered to donate and transport some of their hay.
        He's had so many offers, he's even had to turn some away..
        "People that are extremely far away, North Georgia, across the river, over above Cleveland, Grundy Co.; I appreciate everything they've done but I also don't wanna take advantage of anyone," Fuller said.
        He already has about 95 bales donated to his farm, with more on the way.
        With all the standing offers, Fuller said he'll be able to feed his cattle through the winter after all.
        "I figured some of the close people around here would help me some but I never had any idea, it would be at this magnitude, everyone that saw the airing on the TV, they're willing to help," said Fuller
        Although he still has a lot of clean up left to do, Fuller said he is thankful to start getting back to business as usual.
        "I just greatly greatly greatly appreciate all the help that everyone's gave me, I can actually see light at the end of the tunnel."
