A person trying to escape from this Thornbush Drive house fire sustained injuries after falling while exiting the house. The cause was determined to be an electrical issue.

Electrical issues caused a Wednesday house fire in which a person was injured fleeing the blaze.

“The cause for this fire has been determined to be unintentional,” said Capt. Zachary Brackett, Hall County Fire Services spokesman.

The person hurt during the fire in the 3100 block of Thornbush Drive in East Hall was taken to the hospital, authorities said.

The 1,200-square-foot house is in a subdivision off Gaines Mill Road. Firefighters also had to deal with a fire in nearby woods.

The damage to the house is estimated at $80,000.
