Albany man burned in fire

December 30, 2002

Albany -- An Albany man suffered serious burns when his trailer caught on fire Sunday night. Neighbors say Jerry Cole, who is in his mid-60-s, was taken to the Augusta Burn Center Monday morning.

 They pulled Cole from this trailer in the 200 block of Cordele Road about 6:45 Sunday night. Investigators say food left unattended on the stove started the fire.

 Cole tried to put the fire out with a garden hose. He was overcome by smoke, and suffered second degree burns on his arm and chest.

The trailer was a total loss.
