Fire Causes Extensive Damage In Home

A vacant home in the 1200 block of Winder Highway sustained extensive damage in an overnight fire.

“The blaze does not appear suspicious,” Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services public information officer Capt. Tommy Rutledge said in a released statement.

Rutledge said the home, which sits off the road up a gravel and dirt driveway, is over 100 years old according to the owner’s son.

No one was at the home when the fire started and no injuries were reported.

Due to the age and construction of the home, fire crews had to work to uncover fire in the walls and void spaces.

At the time the fire was reported, there was rain in the area but no lightning was observed.
