Buford Home Damaged by Fire

Home in the 800 block of Old Spring Way sustained smoke and fire damage throughout.

UPDATED 3:06 p.m.

No one was injured in a Sept. 17 fire that caused extensive smoke and fire damage throughout a Buford home.

Firefighters were called to the 800 block of Old Spring Way in Buford shortly before noon after a caller reported seeing heavy smoke coming from the house. Fire crews found smoke coming from the eaves and attic.

Firefighters battled the blaze through heavy heat, smoke and fire conditions bringing the fire under control by 12:30 p.m.

"The definitive response of the fire crews made conserving a good amount of the residents property possible," Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services public information officer Lt. Colin Rhoden said in a released statement.

The residents were not home at the time of the fire, but arrived as the blaze was being brought under control. Two adults and two children were displaced by the fire.

"There was heavy fire damage in the kitchen area of the house and moderate smoke throughout all levels including the basement," Rhoden added. 

According to Rhoden, fire investigators determined the cause of the fire was accidental and was caused by "materials other than cooking implements on the cooking surface."
