Abandoned House 'Totally Consumed' by Fire

The two-story wood frame house burned to the foundation.

An abandoned house on Rabbit Hill Road near Fence Road in Dacula was destroyed in an early morning fire on Monday, Jan. 20.

A 911 caller reported the fire around 3 a.m. Monday morning and indicated the house was most likely an unoccupied and abandoned structure.

Fire crews arrived at the home at 3:07 a.m. and found the structure was fully involved in flames. According to Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services public information officer Lt. Colin Rhoden, crews confirmed the house was abandoned and began fighting the blaze from the exterior of the building.

Firefighters protected the surrounding woods from the fire and used heavy fire attack hose lines to knockdown the fire that "totally consumed" the two-story home and brought it down to its foundation.

There were no reports of injuries, Rhoden added. The cause of the fire is currently undetermined and remains under investigation.
