Officials investigate suspicious house fire in southwest Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Fire investigators are trying to determine if a Sunday evening fire at an abandoned southwest Atlanta home was arson.

Firefighters responded to the 2400 block of Sandfall Court just shortly before 7 p.m. The house was fully engulfed in flames. Crews had to fight the fire from the outside due to its intensity.

Neighbors tell FOX 5 News that the house was under foreclosures. They had been complaining about the house being an eyesore for months.

They told fire investigators that they saw a group of teens running from the house shortly before the flames shot through the roof.

Police scoured the area for the children, but no arrests were made.

A neighboring house received some damage from the fire.

The case is still under investigation.
