ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta City Councilwoman Joyce Shepherd says a
house fire Saturday night has prompted new questions about the
city's 911 operations.
She has asked Atlanta Fire Rescue Chief Kelvin Cochran and
Atlanta Deputy Police Chief George Turner to appear at a Public
Safety Committee meeting Tuesday to discuss the response to the
Grant Park house fire.
Atlanta police Sgt. Lisa Keyes says the director of Atlanta's
911 call center, Miles Butler, also is expected to address
questions on the fire.
Neighbors of the Grant Park couple whose home was gutted by fire
say it took at least 25 minutes before firefighters arrived to put
out the blaze.
The couple who lived in the home got out safely shortly after
the fire broke out about 11 p.m. Saturday.
