Fire destroys main office of Augusta VAH FCU
AUGUSTA, Ga. (9/26/11)--A fire destroyed the headquarters of Augusta (Ga.) VAH FCU early Friday morning. A burglar alarm sounding about 4:30 a.m. was the initial indication that something was awry at the credit union’s main branch on August Parkway. Shortly thereafter, two men called 911 when they saw smoke pouring from the building (WRDW Sept. 23). Twelve fire units were eventually called to the scene. Firefighters were able to gain control of the fire about 6:30 a.m. The building is believed to be completely destroyed. Service to credit union members was uninterrupted, according to the Georgia Credit Union League. The credit union serves its members with two additional branches in Augusta. Also, member records were safeguarded by the credit union’s disaster recovery process, the Georgia league said. Augusta VAH FCU has been offered temporary space by another Augusta credit union and the August VA Hospital, the league said. The cause of the fire was unknown as of Friday afternoon.
