A 61-year-old woman was killed when a home in southern Hall County caught fire overnight, authorities said Saturday morning.
The woman, identified as Kimberly Carter, of Alpharetta, died when the blaze broke out at the home in the 6200 block of Old Stringer Road, Hally County fire spokesman Zach Brackett said.
Firefighters responded to the house shortly before 3 a.m., he said.
When they arrived, the fire at the 3,500 square-foot home was “fully involved on all levels,” he said. Once the blaze was extinguished, crews entered the house and found the body of one person.
Brackett said the homeowners were in Florida for Thanksgiving at the time of the fire.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
