DEKALB COUNTY, GA – A second DeKalb County firefighter dismissed after a fatal Dunwoody fire has won back his job, WSB-TV is reporting.

A hearing officer ruled for William Jeffrey Greene when he appealed his termination last week, according to reports.

Greene was one of the five firefighters fired when a blaze killed 74-year-old Ann Bartlett, hours after the firemen responded to a 911 call and left because they saw no signs of a fire.

The county intends to appeal the ruling, as it has when fired fire Capt. Tony Motes was reinstated last month, according to reports.
