POSTED: March 26, 2013 10:31 p.m.

A fire sent two people to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with minor burns on Tuesday night and destroyed a home on Airport Drive in Gainesville.

A house fire was reported in the 1000 block of Airport Drive at about 7:52 p.m. Responding units could see a large column of smoke while en route and found a 1,000-square-foot home fully involved, Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell said.

While some units extinguished the fire, other units treated the two people with minor burn injuries, he said.

Kimbrell said the house was a total loss, with an approximate value of $20,000.

An investigator was sent to determine the cause of the fire.
