Paul Anthony Dunn, 49 of Social Circle, died in a residential fire at 500 Hickory Drive early Monday morning.
The Social Circle Fire Department responded to the fire call shortly after midnight, and encountered a fire that was roughly 70 percent involved, according to Social Circle Fire Captain Jimmy Robinson.
Robinson said fire fighters, who had gotten word of someone inside the structure, “proceeded to make a fire attack.”
After the fire was under controlled, fire fighters located the victim.
“We were able to remove him, and he wasn’t revivable when they brought him out,” Robinson said.
The Social Circle Police Department assisted in the call, and the Walton County Coroner and State Fire Marshal’s office have been called in to assist with the continuing investigation.
