Firefighters in south Forsyth are being hailed for saving a baby deer from a busy road. The fawn, which firefighters estimated to be about a week old, was seen wandering toward traffic along McFarland Road midday Monday when members of the Station 14 crew took her into the fire station. There, the crew nursed her overnight with diluted goat’s milk and named her Lady McFarland.
