Crew members of the six injured LaGrange firefighters returned to work Wednesday. The city honored them with a lunch.
Meanwhile, the four of six firefighters who sustained severe burn injuries are still hospitalized in Atlanta. Pete Trujillo and Jordan Avera received second-degree burns. Jonathan Williamson and Josh Williams sustained third-degree burns. Two firefighters, Jim Ormsby and Sean Guerrero received minor injuries and were treated and released in LaGrange. Those firefighters were injured when fighting a fire in the 300-block of Revis Street around 2:40 a.m. on Labor Day.
A flash occurred sending the heat to an estimated 1200 degrees. A GoFundMe account has been established for the firefighters by a family friend. City leaders have confirmed this account is legitimate. The money raised will be distributed among all four firefighters. Here is the link: https://www.gofundme.com/injured-lagrange-firefighters

- You can drop them by the City of LaGrange City Hall on Ridley Avenue in care of Dionsenn. Those will be delivered to the firefighters on Friday.
- Cards may also be sent to the Lagrange Fire Department at 115 west hill street.
