Warming fire caused destructive blaze

POSTED: March 27, 2013 11:52 p.m.

The fire that destroyed a house Tuesday on Airport Drive in Gainesville was caused by a warming fire that got out of control, authorities said.

Homeless people had taken over the previously abandoned house and had set a warming fire, Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell said. He said the warming fire got out of control and destroyed the house.

The two people who were injured in the fire were treated at Northeast Georgia Medical Center and released, he said.
