Dalton apartment fire displaces families

WHITFIELD COUNTY, Ga. (WDEF) — An apartment fire in Whitfield County displaces four families on Christmas Day.

On Monday morning, just after 8 a.m., Whitfield County Firefighters responded to the fire on Cox Road.

Officials say everyone was able to get out safely and no one was injured.

Neighbors say they first heard yelling and went outside to see what was going on and then saw smoke and flames.

While neighbors are glad no one was hurt, they are sad families will be temporarily without a home.

“It’s the worst time of the year for something bad to happen like this. And I hope that they have some family nearby that they can stay with and at least enjoy what is left of the holiday with them,” Zachery Lutz said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
