Public Safety Captain injured in fire


A Bainbridge Public Safety Captain was seriously injured while fighting a fire on East Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

Officials said it happened Saturday morning when the front porch area of a home collapsed on Captain Shannon Dunaway.

He was taken to Bainbridge Memorial Hospital with injuries.

Family members said he was still being treated at the hospital Thursday, and was able to walk short distances with assistance.

They said Dunaway may be later taken to another facility.

Dunaway has been with Bainbridge Public Safety for about four years.
