At least two people were displaced as a result of a Thursday, Dec. 6, house fire on East Ridge Road in Gainesville.

Hall County Fire Services responded before noon Thursday to the house in the 1200 block of the road, where they found a 1,300-square-foot home with “heavy smoke showing,” according to Capt. Zachary Brackett.

“The home’s roof had been added onto several times which hampered extinguishment initially,” Brackett wrote in an email.

Two adult residents were displaced but refused assistance from the American Red Cross. No one was injured.

The cause of the fire is undetermined.
