CEDAR­TOWN — A lo­cal res­i­dent sus­tained burns dur­ing an early morn­ing house fire on Blanche Road on March 29.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from the City of Cedar­town, the Cedar­town Fire De­part­ment’s dis­patch re­ceived a call of a home on fire at 804 Blanche Road at 12:20 a.m. Fire­fight­ers rushed to the scene where heavy smoke and flames were vis­i­ble. They made en­try into the home and were even­tu­ally able to put out the fire.

A woman re­sid­ing in the home sus­tained burns to 20 per­cent of her body and was flown to Well­star-Cobb Hospi­tal for treat­ment. Her con­di­tion is un­known at this time.

The re­lease stated that a state in­ves­ti­ga­tor, along with Cedar­town Fire per­son­nel, re-vis­ited the home this morn­ing. They were un­able to de­ter­mine the cause of the fire, but were able to locate the fire’s point of ori­gin.

The cause of the house fire is un­de­ter­mined at this point un­til more in­for­ma­tion can be gath­ered.
