High Creek Run Home Damaged by Fire

No injuries reported.

A home in the 2600 block of High Creek Run sustained damage to an exterior wall as a result of a Monday evening fire.

Firefighters were dispatched to the home at 7:25 p.m. When crews arrived, they found smoke showing from the two-story wood frame house.

According to Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services public information officer Capt. Tommy Rutledge, firefighters removed the exterior siding from one wall to extinguish the flames and prevent the blaze from spreading to the main living space and attic.

The fire damaged the wall and spread light smoke throughout the house. No injuries were reported.

The fire was under control by 7:48 p.m. The cause of the blaze has not been determined.

How about showing a pic of house instead of police car or fire truck?

Hi Caroline - Sorry, I don't have any photos. I got the press release just before 9 p.m. last night and didn't go to the scene to take photos before I posted it.
