Camelot Condominiums fire on the old national road


One person was taken to hospital, officials said.

FULTON COUNTY, Georgia – Two people had to be rescued after a fire broke out at a condominium building in South Fulton on Wednesday.

According to South Fulton Fire Chief Freddie Broome, crews received a call about a fire at Camelot Condominiums just after 2 p.m. The resort is located on Old National Highway 5000.

As the fire still raged, people mobilized to help rescue two young children from a balcony. The video shows a person running with a ladder to help him. A resident has deposited them in a safe place with the person on the ladder.

“When we arrived at the scene, flames were visible from the third floor and were already billowing from the roof,” Broome said.

“There were two victims who were on the third floor that we had to rescue,” he said.

One person was taken to Grady hospital. At the scene, 11Alive learned that the victim was being treated for burns to his hands and face. Another person was treated and released there.

Video from witnesses at the scene showed the raging fire. Another clip shows people lowering what appears to be a child of the building.

The 11Alive SkyTracker flew over the scene which shows the extent of the damage.

“It’s a big apartment building,” Broome said. “Three floors, so there are going to be a lot of occupants who are going to be affected by this fire.”

The Georgia Red Cross responded and said 60 residents were affected. The organization added that the fire destroyed half of a building with 24 apartments.

The electricity to the damaged building has been cut for the moment. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
