Police: After investigation, no fire at Comcast in North Fulton

A structure fire was reported at a Comcast building in Alpharetta on Wednesday, but after a quick investigation, officials determined there was no fire.

Fire and police personnel with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety arrived at 4700 North Point Parkway around 1:20 p.m. Wednesday after reports of smoke and a “burn smell.”

But Alpharetta DPS officer Jason Muenzer said there was no actual fire, and the smell and smoke was caused by some work a heating and air company was performing on the building.

Muenzer said the building was evacuated as a precaution and the city’s fire safety crew will continue to investigate.

This is the same building Comcast is closing later this year, a move that will impact 529 jobs.
