Coweta County Fire Department responded to a report of a house fire in Grantville on 108 Fuller Court.

A neighbor saw smoke coming out of the roof of the house and called 911. Firefighters were dispatched just after noon on Wednesday. First arriving units found flames coming from the roof and the house was three quarters involved in flame. Firefighters entered the burning home through the front door but were forced to back out due to a potential roof collapse.

No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Coweta County Fire Department.
