Fire scorches Norcross pool house

NORCROSS — Fire officials don’t suspect foul play in an early Tuesday morning fire that scorched a pool house at the Wyntree subdivision off Medlock Bridge Road in Norcross.

A man walking the neighborhood called 911 about 5:30 a.m. to report flames shooting from the large, one-story structure’s roof. Crews found the fire roaring and deployed a ladder truck to the tackle the blaze, said Fire Department spokesman Capt. Thomas Rutledge.

No one was at the pool house when the Fire Department arrived, and no injuries were reported. The exact cause has not been determined, Rutledge said.

“The fire appears to have started in the area where the underground utilities connect to the building,” Rutledge said.

Rutledge called the building a total loss. A power company was called to fix a power line downed by the fire, he said.
