Three Residents Displaced After Lawrenceville House Fire

The Saturday morning fire on Lawrenceville Suwanee Road caused heavy damage to the home and killed a family dog, fire officials said.

A house fire on Lawrenceville Suwanee Road on Saturday morning displaced three adult residents, led to the death of a pet dog and heavily damaged the home, according to a media release from the Gwinnett County Fire Department.

Portions of Lawrenceville Suwanee Road were also closed to traffic as firefighters arrived on the scene.

According to the release, the 911 dispatch center recieved multiple calls a little after 10 a.m., including one from a witness who reported smoke coming from the residence and people fleeing the home.

The fire was mostly on the back side of the house, including the carport area, which was destroyed. The house sustained heavy fire damage to the back porch and dining room, and heavy smoke, heat and water damage throughout.

The fire was brought under control about 10:31 a.m., the release says. Four engines, a ladder truck, a squad truck, a medic ambulance, two battalion chiefs, an air and light truck, an arson investigator and the public affairs officer were on scene.

Red Cross was called to assist the residents, who don’t have occupant insurance. There were no human injuries reported. A second dog was resuced from the home.

The fire cause was undetermined and under investigation Saturday morning.

What do I see while checking my email? Yet another ignorant tirade, probably from the same person, who is just changing his first name. Well, "Mr. Doe", it seems to me that you know quite a few details about that house for someone who claims to do no wrong in life. TEN days later you are still ranting about this incident. So you not have anything better to do? Got kicked off Facebook or something? Once again, this is not about throwing these people's names through the mud. Help was needed and still is, I'm sure. As a COMMUNITY why can't we come together andsupport one another in times of need? Only God can judge. You would do well to remember that. Get a new hobby.

No Hunny This is someone completely different. I have never commented on this story until today. I just found out. I have known this family for several years. I'm sorry it's hard for anyone to help any individual who did this to themselves. You talk about being a cancer survivor... Well you should be pissed that these people constantly did drugs and other things to damage their body... Trust me, I'm not ignorant to this story. And reading the comments back and forth you sure did spend a LOT of time on this topic. Unless you know this family then you really have no input in the situation. Like I said, play with fire... You will get burned. That house almost got condemned a year ago. Bit because no children were living in it the cops couldn't do it. So yea It's a blessing that house is finally gone. I'm hoping it wakes the people up to finally stop messing with drugs.

You don't know me, so you can cut the "Hunny" label right now. And yes, I did spend time on this because the other "Doe" wouldn't leave it alone. Once again, I'm not judging these people, not my place to. I am concerned about a lot of issues and if drugs were involved then they need even more help. I'm not a saint, nor am I naive...I simply want to offer my assistance in different areas in this world. Everyone deserves help. I am very passionate about people that need help, have been abused, are hungry, homeless or just need someone to talk to. Grow up and leave me alone.

Jan...your heart is in the right place, but trust me, these people do not deserve your sympathy or your charity/assistance. These people are an absolute cancer and have done unspeakable damage to the community and some very good families. I applaud your desire to help...but please find someone more deserving. Jan, I promise you, these people are the lowest of the low and deserve nothing but a lifetime behind bars. They are sorry excuses for human beings and represent the absolute worst of what America has to offer. Any "help" they receive will only expedite them getting drugs in childrens hands. The only sad part of this whole story is the fact that an innocent animal had to die. In my opinion, the dog was the most worthy to escape the fire. P.S. As a tip for investigators, please keep your eyes peeled for dirty needles while combing the house. Also, you should probably look into so-called "doctors" they were associated with in Monroe
