One person injured in house fire in Oakwood, pets rescued

A house caught fire in Oakwood on Sunday, causing one person to be treated for minor injuries, according to the Hall County Fire Rescue. The fire was reported in the 4000 block of Stephens Road.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, smoke was coming from the house, said Hall County EMS Coordinator Capt. Bobby Ogletree. Crews went into the single-family residence and quickly extinguished the flames.

It’s unclear how many people live at the house, Ogletree said, but one person was treated on the scene for minor injuries. The Red Cross was also called to assist.

Fire crews said several people were trying to get into the house to save pets. All of the pets were safely removed.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

The fire broke out hours after another house fire in Hall County injured three people and claimed three pets’ lives.
