BUFORD, Ga. -- One unit of a Gwinnett County duplex was heavily damaged in a fire Tuesday night.
The fire broke out at around 10:30 p.m. in the 4200 block of Dejohns Way in Buford.
Gwinnett County Fire Capt. Tommy Rutledge said both units were already evacuated when crews arrived. Firefighters attacked the blaze from inside the building to prevent it from spreading to the adjoining unit.
Rutledge said two adults were inside the unit that caught fire. They heard glass breaking and ran downstairs to discover thick smoke on the main level. They then went next door to help their neighbors escape.
No one was hurt. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
