One fire is thought to have been ignited due to downed power lines in the 1200 block of Lakeridge Court SW in Grayson, Georgia. According to fire officials, a tree fell and hit a service line to a home, pulling the weather head away from the structure. This caused an electrical issue that caused a surge protector to catch fire and melt a small area of carpet inside the home. The fire was out when firefighters arrived and the residence was naturally ventilated to remove residual smoke. No one was hurt.

The second reported fire happened in the 1300 Block of Willow River Run SW, also in Grayson. A tree fell into a high tension power line that runs through the neighborhood. The tree caught fire, but was extinguished by firefighters on arrival. No damage was reported to the power lines. No injuries were reported.
