Crews were dispatched around 1:30 a.m. after a caller advised about a possible fire at a home in the 500 block of Jetal Place, Atlanta fire spokeswoman Alyssa Richardson said. Nearly 30 firefighters responded within minutes and encountered flames and heavy smoke, she said.
Officials forced entry into the home and found a man lying in a bed unconscious, according to Richardson. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. The victim’s name was not released.
