Trooper saves home from fire

Trooper Emory “Rocky” Blanton of Troop B- Lake City DistrictOur agency recently received a personal thank you letter from Hamilton County Judge Sonny Scaff after Trooper Rocky Blanton discovered a small grass fire that spread across 20 acres near the judge’s home back in November 2008.

Once he observed the fire, Trooper Blanton notified and directed the local volunteer fire department and the Division of Forestry to the most direct routes to gain control of the wind driven blaze. The judge and his family were not at home when the fire occurred.

Good job, Trooper Rocky!
