One person dies in Dawson County fire Sunday


DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – A Dawson County woman died in a residential fire early Sunday morning.

Dawson County Emergency Services responded to a mobile home fire just before 1 15 Gal-a-gina Drive where they discovered a single-wide trailer on fire.

The incident is being investigated by Georgia State Fire Marshall’s office, Dawson County Fire Marshall’s and Dawson County Sheriff’s Department. Cause is undetermined, pending further investigation.
