WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Thousands of people in Houston County are without power still and cleaning up the mess Hurricane Michael made. But some people had a little extra help from a stranger who showed up to save the day–free of charge.
Houston County resident Nathan Fisher is a hometown hero.
“God blessed me with my business if I can help somebody else in need that’s the least I can do for people,” Fisher Construction owner Nathan Fisher told 41NBC.
He took the day after the storm as an opportunity to come to the rescue for several complete strangers–just when they needed it most.
“We’re out here helping people that have got trees or debris in their driveway or on their house removing it for them if they need to get out and go somewhere,” he said.
He and his wife spent the day helping clean up the devastation left behind by one of the most powerful storms to hit Middle Georgia yet, according to National Weather Service Officials in Peachtree City.
“We put some news out on Facebook and other places that anybody that need help we’d be more than happy to help,” he explained.
Fisher, who owns a construction company in Houston County, spent part of the morning removing a giant tree from one family’s yard and its enormous limb from their car.
“The tree had broken off and landed on a lady’s car and the other half was still standing but they were afraid the other half was going to fall onto the house,” he said.
For him, it was a chance to do something good for someone else.
“We were riding by while going to help somebody else and saw it, and after we finished where we were headed, we turned around and came back to see if we could help them,” he said.
Fisher says showing a little kindness amidst the chaos and giving crews out on the job a helping hand was a small gesture for the community he loves.
