Blaze destroys abandoned barn

LAWRENCEVILLE - An abandoned horse barn burned to the ground early Saturday, but no injuries resulted and no animals were inside at the time.

Gwinnett firefighters worked for an hour to put out the blaze, which had completely engulfed the barn located at 343 Old Peachtree Road, said Lt. Craig Stanley, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Fire Department.

The barn was located on county-owned land that officials are considering building a park on, Stanley said.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
