After the attack Hagrid presumably travelled from Hogwarts to Godric's Hollow so quickly that he got there before the next door neighbours rescued Harry. How did Hagrid hear the news? If Dumbledore sent him, who told Dumbledore?

Dumbledore could have placed a charm on the house, but he didn't know the Potters were hiding there because it was part of the Fidelius charm. It also seems a bit mad to add a charm that only works when it's too late to make any difference.
wasnt it DD that suggested the fidelius charm? i dont think the charm would prevent him from knowing they were there. it would prevent him from entering. the DE's knew where 12 grimmuald place was, just couldnt enter because of the charm.
