Two cars and most of a home were destroyed by fire in Floyd County on Sunday evening.
Firefighters responded to the location on Regina Drive in Armuchee at about 6:00pm and arrived to find two vehicles on fire in the driveway; the flames soon spread to the home – fortunately the residents of the home all made it out safely.
The father of the family told the media that he was in his living room watching television – when he heard a loud pop; he then went to the door and saw one of the vehicles on fire – at which point he immediately hustled everyone out of the house.
Both cars were a total loss along with much of the duplex.
the Red Cross was called in to assist the eight adults and one child residing in both apartments of the duplex.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
