A house fire Wednesday morning at a home in Buford caused no injuries, but Hall County Fire Services Capt. Zachary Brackett said the home was a total loss. The cause and origin of the fire are still under investigation.
Fire crews responding from Hall and Gwinnett counties found a vehicle in a garage on fire at a 5,000-square-foot lakefront home in the 5900 block of Island View Drive off of Lakeshore Drive. The blaze then reached the home’s attic.
Crews were operating in a defensive mode because of the heavy fire upon arrival.
The residents were not home at the time.
