Heavy smoke prevented crews from seeing the house when they first arrived.

Doyle said the house was not a total loss.

One man is dead after a late Sunday morning house fire in unincorporated Lawrenceville.

Two dogs were rescued from the blaze.

Authorities said a man who lived there jumped out of the window to escape. The woman was eventually found safe and was away visiting with her adult daughter.


One occupant was taken to hospital in unstable condition, officials said.

No injuries were reported and the Red Cross will assist the family with temporary shelter. The cause of death was ruled as smoke inhalation.

Crews were called to the home on Hartzell Road after neighbors and motorists passing by noticed flames coming from the living room, according to the police report.

The victim's name has not been released.
