Fire destroys home in Gwinnett County

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters faced special challenges as they battled a blaze at a Gwinnett County home on Monday.

SKYFOX 5 was over the scene Monday afternoon as firefighters battled the blaze at a home on Hunting Ridge Drive.

Arctic temperatures made the task more difficult for fire crews, as water quickly turned to ice.

Three people inside the home were able to escape, but at least three of family's dogs were killed, according to fire officials.

The home was a total loss, according to officials. The fire also damaged a vehicle and boat parked close to the house.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
