GREATER DECATUR, GA (Atlanta News First) — Crews battled a large apartment fire Monday morning in DeKalb County.
DeKalb Dispatch says a call came in at 8:10 a.m. for a fire at 3526 Sleeping Fawn Knolls in Decatur.
The Atlanta News First Chopper flew over the scene where huge flames and billowing smoke could be seen coming through the roof of a building.
No injuries were reported.
DeKalb County Fire Rescue Department says the fire was possibly caused by a space heater.
“You want to make sure space heaters have kind of a space around them, space to breathe if that makes sense,” said Captain Jaeson Daniels, Dekalb County Fire Rescue Department.
