A blaze heavily damaged a home at 3215 West Lake Drive in Druid Hills late Thursday night.
Meridian Fire Chief Bunky Partridge said no injuries resulted from the fire at a house owned by Dorothy Roberts. Firefighters received the call about 10:15 p.m.
Miller said no one was home when the blaze ignited.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said, but investigators believe the flames ignited in the northwest rear bedroom. He said investigators do not suspect arson.
Firefighters fought the flames with a five-inch supply line. He said an additional unit was called out to have more people and more hand lines, so firefighters could rotate fighting the blaze.
A total of four trucks were called in addition to a rescue unit and a command unit.
Partridge said a firefighter with the department's After the Fire program went to the home after flames were extinguished to offer help. They booked Roberts into a hotel room for the night and will be providing additional help if she needs it.
