Incidents
    GEORGIA HIGHWAY 46 — A man tried to extinguish a fire inside a house by covering a burning car seat with a blanket around 8:30 p.m. Monday. When that didn’t work he grabbed another blanket, doused it in water, and smothered the fire. The blaze was at a neighbor’s home, and she ran to his home for help. She told deputies she had a lit candle on a table and went to the rest room to return and see the car seat on fire. Her small child suffered burns to his fingers and forehead and was taken to the hospital, then later to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta.
    GEORGIA HIGHWAY 24 — Deputies responded to a report of shots fired around 10:30 p.m. Monday. The deputy spoke with a teenager who said she was “making out” with another subject when the shots rang out and others “scrambled” when they saw the deputy arrive. A teen was found hiding in the woods, and beer, “bootlegger” wine and a smoking device were found on the premises. The juvenile who lived there fled into the woods, and no parent was found in the area. The homeowner later called the deputy, who arranged a meeting with the adult and child for further investigation.
