No major accidents, 1 fire overnight

Newton, Covington staying safe in storm

No major incidents were reported throughout Tuesday evening and into Wednesday morning.

Newton County Deputy Fire Chief Brad Stapp said there were several small wrecks but no major injuries.

There was one fire reported in the county, in a residence off Smithstore Road. Stapp said the homeowners were able to get out.

No fires or major accidents were reported in the city of Covington.

“Looks like there has been no snow in some spots and some are pretty iced over,” Covington Deputy Chief Fire Marshall Tony Smith said. “We are encouraging people to stay put and let mother nature melt things off.”

Among the issues that could arise are fires from home fire places. Stapp recommends making sure the flu is clear, not to overload the fireplace and not to leave them unattended.
