Four people were displaced Friday, Nov. 23, from their North Hall home after flames “engulfed” one bedroom, according to authorities.
Hall County firefighters responded Friday afternoon to a 1,200-square-foot home on the 2600 block of Pass Circle. The occupants discovered the fire about 4:15 p.m. after returning home.
Capt. Zachary Brackett said the fire was rapidly extinguished, and no injuries were reported for the four occupants — two adults and two children.
The fire department recommends that you “close before you doze,” and said on its Twitter feed that this fire was a real-life example of how that strategy works, citing a closed door that kept the flames from spreading.
The cause is unknown at this time.
