Two overnight fires kept Hall County Fire Services crews busy, but there were no injuries in either, spokesman Capt. Zachary Brackett reported.

The bigger of the two came on Holly Springs Road in eastern Hall County, where crews responded to find a 1,200-square-foot doublewide mobile home in flames. A water shuttle operation was put in place to knock down the fire.

The home's four occupants escaped without injuries and are staying with relatives.

Crews earlier responded to a fire on Stallworth Street just south of Gainesville where a fire in a 3,000-square-foot duplex began in a breaker box but was confined. The power was secured and the fire was extinguished with no injuries reported.

The causes of both fires remain under investigation, Brackett said.
