ALPHARETTA, GA. – A house fire on Long Indian Creek Court in the Berkshire Manor community Nov. 14 caused "considerable" damage before fire crews could put it out.

A 911 call came in at just before 10 a.m. from a neighbor saying smoke could be seen coming from the roof of the home, at 3313 Long Indian Creek Court. It is on the border with Johns Creek and just off Haynes Bridge Road.

"We did have a working fire that appeared to originate in the kitchen," said Public Safety Deputy Director Keith Sanders.

Investigators determined the blaze started in the kitchen because the stove was left on, with a pan on top.

The rental house was unoccupied at the time.

When crews arrived, flames could be seen coming from the roof. The two-story residence suffered heavy fire damage in the garage and living room and had a partial roof collapse before the fire was extinguished.

At the fire's height, 22 fire personnel worked on it employing five engines and a ladder truck. Members of Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Milton's fire departments participated.

"Our folks did a good job," Sanders said.

Alpharetta police were the first on the scene 7 minutes and 30 seconds after the 911 call.
