Woman Killed in Cochran Fire
Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King announced today that one person was killed in a Bleckley County Fire. The fire occurred on Randall Road in Cochran around 6:32 a.m. on Tuesday, April 27. The 1,728-square-feet double-wide mobile home, built in 1997, was a total loss.
“The victim was found inside a bedroom after the fire was extinguished,” said Commissioner King. “It was discovered that an extension cord coming from the home was being used to supply electricity to a camper on the property, and it appears there was not a working smoke detector in the home. I employ all Georgians to check their smoke detectors regularly to help prevent future tragedies.”
Our Fire Investigations Unit is assisting the Bleckley County Sheriff’s Office, Fire Department, and Coroner’s office in this investigation. Ms. Dellamar’s body was transported to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s crime lab in Atlanta for autopsy. This marks the 54th death from a Georgia fire in 2021.
The mission of the Office of the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner is to protect Georgia families by providing access to vital insurance products and safe buildings through fair regulation that creates economic opportunities for all Georgians.
