A home belonging to Howard Goss on Fred Goss Road was completely destroyed by fire Sunday night.
According to E-911 director David Camp, a neighbor called 911 after spotting flames across the road from her house. Danielsville Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene, along with back up from Colbert, Collins, and Comer fire departments.
According to Danielsville fire chief Marc Perry, the house was fully involved when firefighters arrived on scene around 8:22 p.m. No one was apparently at home when the fire started.
The Red Cross was summoned and the fire marshal and the sheriff’s office were also called in to investigate. Chief Perry said this is routine in cases where newer structures are involved in a fire, but that no foul play is suspected.
We are very thankful to all who showed support during the recent burning of Howard & Cody Goss’ home. We especially want to thank the fire departments from Comer, Colbert, Collins, and Danielsville. They came out on a bitterly cold night, missing the Super Bowl, and showed great professionalism and kindness. Many friends, family members, and churches prayed for us and brought clothing and food. We want to thank you all. The house was a total loss, but we have what has eternal value-friends, family and faith in Jesus. May the Lord bless you all! Sincerely, Howard & Cody Goss, Mark & Mindy Goss, and Tim & Angie Shubert.
