Colquitt County- Mike Dozier's private workshop was destroyed earlier today in a fire.

       By the time Dozier rushed home from work in Pelham, his private workshop and storage shed were engulfed in flames. He arrived to find fire crews working at a five-alarm rate. "There was about nine fire trucks. And a lot of volunteers here putting the fire out.", says Dozier.

       But it was too late for his business, both buildings were gone. The business was not only part of Dozier's livelihood, it was also where he stored his family's personal items alongside his customers' property. "This was the shop I worked in every night. Every night for the past 15 or 18 years. But everything was lost. That was my son's truck inside, and a customer's car outside, four-wheelers, lawn mowers, freezers."

       A day that Dozier says started out like any other ended in heartache. But he says he won't let it keep him down, no matter how much was lost. "Kind of another setback. But you still get up and go on.", says Dozier.

       Fortunately, nobody was home at the time of the fire, and nobody was hurt. The cause is not known, and is under investigation.
