Moultrie Company helps kids escape fire

February 25, 2004

Moultrie - A fire safety class on wheels will soon hit the road again, thanks to a manufacturing company.

Destiny Homes in Moultrie spent thousands of dollars and weeks of manpower to give the state's Fire Safety House a facelift.

The house travels in south Georgia teaching kids how to get out of potentially deadly situations. It has a fake fireplace, a mini bedroom upstairs and a smoke machine. Fire Commissioner John Oxendine says, "It simulates a burning, smoke filled home and they have to learn how to evacuate, not being able to see and have scary smoke all around them."

Oxendine issued a proclamation for Destiny Homes. He says because of the tight state budget, the fire safety house would not be back on the road without the generosity of the Moultrie Company.

The Fire Safety House has taught 128,000 children about escaping a fire.
