Firefighters with Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services are on the scene of a residential fire in Suwanee that broke out in a 9,000-square-foot home in a gated community.
At 3:35 a.m., Sunday, Feb. 5, firefighters were called out to the home in the 4700 block of Cuyahoga Cove NW in Suwanee by a neighbor who advised 9-1-1 that the entire front of the home was engulfed in flames.
“On arrival, crews found a large 9,000 square-foot, two-story residence on a basement that was fully involved throughout the main portion of the home. Firefighters immediately began deploying defensive hose lines to protect exposures from the radiant heat,” said Lt. Justin Wilson, a public information officer with Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services in a written statement.
The fire department attacked the blaze from several angles. Three hose lines and an aerial ladder were used on the front of the home while firefighters were able to access the rear of the home from another street. Three additional hose lines and an aerial ladder were used on the rear of the home.
The bulk of the fire has been extinguished but firefighters are still working to extinguish hot spots.
The home is located in the gated community of the River Club. The private security for the neighborhood told firefighters that the homeowners are out of town at the moment. No injuries have been reported.
The cause of the fire will be investigated once the fire is completely out.
