​Flashback Friday: May 18, 1978

The Newnan Times-Herald

Fire damage was kept at about 30 percent of the Western School gymnasium early Tuesday morning. Although the fire was under control within 38 minutes after the first truck arrived, firemen stayed on the scene for nearly four hours watching for spot fires and hot coals to re-ignite the blaze. The cause of the fire has not been determined and is being investigated by fire officials.
