Fire damages vacant southwest Atlanta townhome

No injuries were reported Wednesday in a predawn fire that heavily damaged a vacant townhome just south of downtown Atlanta.

The fire was reported about 4:35 a.m. at the townhome at Fulton and Windsor streets in southwest Atlanta.

“We arrived and found fire coming out of the second floor windows,” Atlanta fire Capt. Ken Fisher said.

“When we entered the structure on the first floor, we found that the stairway was burned out,” Fisher told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We used a ladder from the exterior and went in the second floor window and put the fire out.”

The cause of the fire, which was confined to one of the three townhouses in the building, has not been determined.
