The cause of the fire is being investigated, but the homeowner told Channel 2 that officials were asking about a propane grill in the backyard, which the owner said had been off for 15 hours.

Cobb County fire spokeswoman Denell Boyd said the fire started on the back deck of the home and appears to be an accident.

A neighbor, Patsy Adams, told WSB that she heard an explosion.
