Brunswick man displaced by fire

Posted: Updated:

American Red Cross Disaster Action Team members from Glynn County assisted a 75-year-old Brunswick resident who lives alone, after a fire caused major damage to his home on Woodland Way Wednesday morning.

The resident had gone to bed but woke up sometime after midnight and decided to watch TV for a while. He heard a popping noise coming from another run and decided to investigate. He saw smoke and flames when he entered the room and immediately went to a neighbor's home and asked for them to call 911.

Brunswick Fire Department responded immediately but the home had already suffered major damage by the time they arrived to extinguished the flames.

The home is uninhabitable but the resident has a nephew in the Brunswick area who has welcomed him into his home. The Red Cross provided the man with food, a comfort kit with personal hygiene items and seasonal clothing.
