DULUTH, Ga. -- A neighbor's quick-thinking may have saved the lives of two Duluth, Ga. residents Sunday morning just before a fire consumed part of their home.
Fire crews from Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services were dispatched to a report of a house fire in the 2700 block of Eudora Trail in the Sugarloaf Country Club.
An occupant of the home said they were made aware of the fire when a neighbor came and knocked on the door.
Because of that, the two college-aged students escaped unharmed.
When fire crews arrived on scene they found a large two story residence with heavy fire coming from one side of the house. Firefighters quickly went to work on the fire limiting most of the damage to the first floor. Fire was kept to the original residence and did not spread to any surrounding houses.
