Duluth home fire reignites
DULUTH -- Firefighters responded to the same Duluth home Wednesday night to twice fight a residential fire, officials said.
The initial call came about 5 p.m., when an occupant returned home to find a kitchen on fire in the two-story home in the 2700 block of Gravitt Road.
Fire crews doused that fire, which caused heavy damage to the rear of the home, and left. It was determined to have started from food left unattended on a stove, said Fire Department spokesman Capt. Thomas Rutledge.
Two hours later, a neighbor reported flames shooting from the home, and firefighters were dispatched a second time, Rutledge said. The second fire heavily damaged the home's roof and front, he said.
The exact cause for the second fire is under investigation. The blaze may have reignited from fire in a hidden void space, Rutledge said. No injuries were reported.
Fire damages mobile home
LOGANVILLE -- Fire damaged a mobile home Thursday in the 1900 block of Old Loganville Road in Loganville.
The home's occupants were working outside the home when they discovered the fire and called 911 at 11:46 a.m., Rutledge said. The blaze was under control about 15 minutes later.
The fire appears to have originated in a bedroom and sent smoke and heat throughout the structure, Rutledge said. The exact cause of the fire is undetermined.
No injuries were reported.
