A Gwinnett County man learned the hard way how quickly fire can spread Saturday afternoon. While attempting to burn off his Bermuda grass for a greener spring lawn, he accidentally caught several neighbors' yards on fire, according to Capt. Tommy Rutledge.
The incident occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Birnamwood Drive and Hexham Court in Suwanee, Rutledge said. The man's home sustained cosmetic damage, but no other structure was damaged, he said. No one was injured.
