Firefighters arrived at the Silk Oak Way home at 2:35 a.m. and found heavy smoke showing from a two-story, wood frame home. The four occupants were outside and uninjured when police and fire personnel arrived at the scene.
"Firefighters deployed attack hose lines and immediately entered the burning home to conduct a primary search and battle the blaze," said Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Public Information Officer Capt. Tommy Rutledge in a released statement. "The fire caused heavy damage to the interior of the home and contents."
The cause of the fire is currently undetermined and under investigation by the fire department.
The family was displaced as a result of the damage.
