Knocking neighbor saves Gwinnett residents from house fire


 

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.

Bobbi Kristina family comments on condition amid 'white tent' speculation


DULUTH, Ga. -- The hospice center where Bobbi Kristina Brown is being housed is not commenting on a white tent that recently went up near their building.

However friends and family close to Brown said that the young girl is still alive and that they are unsure of the purpose of the tent.

This comes after recent speculation among social media and entertainment news sites that the tent is somehow related to Brown's condition.

The recent word from the family appears to show that not to be the case.

A father just wants to know who killed his daughter


DULUTH, Ga. – Nearly three years after a 25-year-old woman was shot to death in Duluth, police are at a dead end in their investigation, and her family has been able to increase the reward in the case to $100,000.

But there is a time limit of 90 days on that higher amount -- for a reason.

Monique Marlowe worked at the Hertz Rental Cars location that, at the time, was on Satellite Boulevard near Pleasant Hill Road. She was in the parking lot in back on September 21, 2012, cleaning one of the rental cars, getting it ready for another customer, when a man ran up to her, shot her once, left her for dead and ran away.

Duluth woman reunited with Corvette after 43 years


DULUTH, Ga. -- A Duluth woman has been reunited with her beloved Corvette after 43 years.

Back in February, 11Alive featured the story of how Terry Dietrich's 1972 Corvette Stingray was stolen out of her driveway when she was 19 years ago.

The car was tracked down in North Carolina last fall, but since Allstate Insurance had already paid for Dietrich's lost car, they said it no longer belonged to her.

Earlier this month, Allstate gave Dietrich the surprise of a lifetime. Click the video above to watch!
