Deputy returns to work after house fire

Posted: Updated:
COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) -

A Colquitt County Deputy is back on the job after his home was destroyed in a fire.

Deputy John Vickers lost nearly everything when his house burned down June 3rd on Ellis May Road. His community has helped him recover.

Vickers has received donations from many local businesses. One store even offered to replace his lost furniture.

"When you lose everything, and you're literally standing there with nothing but the close on your back. All of a sudden you're like, what do I do know? But the community has come together and really supported him," said Lt. Randy Stephens.

Vickers has been staying with friends and family until he finds a permanent residence.
