Famed golfer Davis Love III saw his house burn down early Friday morning, but he and his wife Robin are safe. Here’s more on what happened from Garry Smits of The Florida Times-Union:
The St. Simons Island, Ga., home of two-time Players Championship winner Davis Love III burned down early this morning after a fire began in garage.
…Love and his wife Robin were the only people in the residence at the time and escaped without injury. Glynn County fire chief R.K. Jordan said there were no injuries to the 16 firefighters from multiple units who responded to the blaze.
Jordan said the first call to the dispatch center came at 5:18 a.m. and the first truck arrived on the scene at 5:23 a.m. to find the home fully engulfed. Eventually, three engines, a tanker truck and three rescue vehicles responded.
“It was gone upon our arrival,” Jordan said of the second-alarm fire.
