A DeKalb County firefighter carried a woman to safety after a fire partially engulfed a house Tuesday afternoon.
The blaze on Justin Lane near Lithonia sent two people to the hospital with minor smoke-related injuries, DeKalb County Fire Rescue said in a post on social media.
The fire started about 1 p.m. Tuesday. The initial call indicated people may have been trapped inside, the fire department said.
Photos sent out by the fire department show smoke coming from all sides of the house, with the left side up in flames.
The three people inside during the fire were able to get themselves out. One was shown in a photograph being carried to safety by a DeKalb firefighter.
