DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

A Dougherty County house, hit by the tornado in January, was demolished on Tuesday.

The home was on Camellia Road off Radium Springs Road.

Volunteers tore down the damaged home that was moved 40 feet from its original setting when the storm came through.

The homeowner was at work when it happened.

One volunteer said that he appreciated the kindness residents in South Georgia have shown. 

"One of the things that touches us is how nice the people are down here and they all seem to accept what happened and we haven't met anyone that's bitter yet," said volunteer Eric Hoover.

The volunteers were from Ohio and said they have been here for about six weeks helping to cleanup the area.
