The Athens-Clarke County Fire Department evacuated the 909 Broad apartments downtown after a fire broke out this morning in the building’s parking deck.
Students milled around on the sidewalk, chatting and petting dogs as firemen extinguished the car fire. It did not appear serious, but officials had few details.
“Car fire in the parking lot’s all we’ve got,” said Battalion Chief W. D. Smith.
