House Fire Displaces Family in Cartersville

The two-story home was a total loss.

A Cartersville house caught fire Tuesday while its residents were home and was destroyed by the time firefighters got the blaze under control.

Firefighting crews were dispatched at 9:18 p.m. to 32 Chestnut Ridge, off Peeples Valley Road, where a two-story, wood-framed house was ablaze. The roof and the complete upstairs were on fire, Bartow County Fire Department Battalion Chief David Levey said.

More than an hour and half later at 10:54 p.m., fire officials deemed the blaze under control. They didn't leave the scene until 1:06 a.m.

The 2,800-square-foot home was a total loss, Levey said.

He was unable to say how many people lived there, but said the homeowners were at home when the fire started.

The cause of the blaze is undetermined, pending an investigation.
