A residential fire on Old Cornelia Highway Tuesday evening left damage that displaced 11 people.

Hall County Fire Services received the call at about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday. Firefighters arriving at the home found heavy smoke but were able to extinguish the fire quickly, according to Division Chief Casey Ramsey. No one was injured.

The American Red Cross is helping seven adults and four children who were living at the home.

The home did not have any working smoke alarms. Hall County Fire Services offers free smoke alarms to households that need one, and people can call 770-531-6838 to request one.

Ramsey said the Hall County Fire Marshal’s Office is working to determine the cause.
