6th fire in 3 days blazes through vacant home

POSTED: April 14, 2014 12:10 a.m.

Hall firefighters responded to a residential fire early Sunday morning, making it the sixth blaze since Thursday night.

Emergency services were called around 1:20 a.m. to the 3500 block of White Sulphur Road, off of Cornelia Highway near Airline Baptist Church. They found the structure engulfed in flames.

The house has been deemed a “total loss,” according to Fire Marshal Scott Cagle. He said the property, at approximately 1,800 square feet, was abandoned and had no power running to it.

No injuries were reported.

Two of the six fires have been ruled as accidental; the others, including this White Sulphur Road incident, are under investigation.

Two other fires on Price Road and Glenn Burtz Road share similarities to the White Sulphur fire, as they were also both unoccupied and did not have power.

“As of right now, although there are some similarities, we have no reason to believe any of these fires are connected,” Cagle said.
