Family of 10 displaced after DeKalb house fire

A family of 10 was displaced after a house fire in DeKalb County on Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

At 3:50 p.m., firefighters responded to a house engulfed in smoke and flames off Carrollwood Drive in unincorporated Stone Mountain, the DeKalb fire department said in a Facebook post.

A firetruck had to force its way through the home’s garage door to give firefighters better access to water at the rear of the house, which was ablaze, the post said.

No one was injured during the incident. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
