Wednesday Morning Apartment Fire in Sandy Springs

The fire occurred at The Pointe at Canyon Ridge on Roswell Road.

Sandy Springs Fire Rescue was on the scene of an apartment fire at The Pointe at Canyon Ridge, this morning.

The fire was pretty severe said Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Scarbrough. "Nobody's hurt that we're aware of," he said. "As much fire as we had, there should have been a lot more damage to the building."

Officials are looking into the cause of the blaze in the 10-unit building. The apartment community is located on Roswell Road near Northridge Road.

Firefighters put the initial fire out in three minutes, but it had extended to the attic, Scarbrough said. Firefighters spent 20 minutes putting it completely out.

Fire Rescue was dispatched at 8:08 a.m. and arrived within six minutes.

"When we got here it was fire just blowing out of the building," Scarbrough said.
