DULUTH -- A vacant house in a Duluth subdivision was destroyed by fire Monday afternoon.
Gwinnett County firefighters responded to the home on the 3900 block of Centennial Trail at about 2:50 p.m. Monday after a neighbor called in the blaze, spokesman Lt. Eric Eberly said. Heavy flames and smoke coming from the back of the two-story home, firefighters quickly discovered the house to be empty and attacked the fire from the outside.
Crews were able to prevent the flames from spreading to a nearby residence, Eberly said.
No injuries were reported. Investigators were still trying to determine the fire's cause Monday evening, Eberly said.
