Courthouse gets new fire alarm
Alleged arsonist on house arrest
Servpro spent a week at the courthouse cleaning up after the June fire.
While a new fire alarm system is being installed in the DeKalb County Courthouse, the case of the man responsible for revealing that the old alarm system was broken in June is still pending in court. It was learned that the old fire alarm system at the courthouse was inoperable when Gary Wayne Ponder, 52, allegedly set fire to the courthouse on June 14. Ponder was charged with aggravated arson, and is currently on house arrest.
