A morning fire has left a Hall County family homeless. Now, investigators are trying to determine how it started.
Around 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22, Hall County and Gainesville firefighters responded to the lakeside mobile home in the 3200 block of Cleveland Highway. When they arrived, they found the fire had consumed half of the residence and spread to a nearby vehicle.
An adult and two children who live in the home safely evacuated before firefighters arrived.
As of 11 a.m. Wednesday, crews were still on the scene putting out hot spots. Local law enforcement temporarily blocked Cleveland Highway due to the fire trucks.
Fire officials contacted the American Red Cross to help the displaced family.
The cause of the fire is unknown, says Hall County Fire Rescue Public Information Officer Kimberlie Ledsinger. The Hall County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
