Family Escapes House Fire Uninjured but the Home on Lakeview Lane is a Total Loss


CLEVELAND, Ga. – Firefighters from White County, the City of Cleveland and Lee Arrendale responded to a house fire on Lakeview Lane, west of the Cleveland city limits at about 6 a.m. today.

White County spokeswoman Ana Newberry said in an email that all occupants of the home had exited the 1700-foot structure before firefighters arrived and that flames could be seen through the roof of the structure.

The homeowner, who was not identified, told firefighters she “awoke to the smell of smoke and later heard an explosion” and quickly exited the home with her children.

The state investigator and local fire investigators were called to the scene to try and determine a cause.  The home is unlivable at this time.  Firefighters were on scene for about three hours. No injuries were reported.
