A Buford home sustained heavy damage as a result of an April 9 fire.
Gwinnett County firefighters were dispatched to the Pebble Trace home at 11:01 p.m. By the time firefighters arrived at 11:09 p.m., the one-story home was fully involved according to fire officials.
"Crews attacked the fire from the outside of the building due to the heavy smoke and fire conditions," Gwinnett Fire and Emergency Services public information officer Lt. Colin Rhoden said in a released statement. "Heavy water streams were used to knockdown the fire prior to firefighters making entry into the structure. Crews changed the mode of operation to an offensive attack and entered the building to complete thorough searches and to put out any hidden fires."
The roof of the building was completely consumed by fire and the house heavily damaged, Rhoden added.
The owner of the home was out of town at the time of the incident and no injuries were reported. A fire investigator was called to the scene to determine the cause of the blaze. Fire officials did not disclose whether a cause determination has yet been made.
