An Atlanta firefighter was recovering in the hospital Friday after falling from the roof while battling a Buckhead blaze the previous day.
Firefighter Spurgeon Putnam fell 20 feet from a building at the Victoria complex in the 3500 block of Roswell Road Thursday. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
“No neck injuries, no spinal injuries, no broken bones. He was amazingly lucky,” fire department spokeswoman Janet Ward told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
