Structure fire in Cedartown - May 22, 2019

No one was injured after a fire that began on a porch spread indoors in a house in the area of Canal Street in Cedartown. 

No one was injured and damage estimates were still being figured out after a house fire in Cedartown late this afternoon. 

Cedartown Fire Chief Felix White said everyone was accounted for during a single story structure fire off Canal Street reported around 5:30 p.m. that began on the porch and moved indoors. 

He said much of the structure was damaged by smoke, and the porch was a total loss but that full estimates of how much the fire destroyed were still being evaluated after firefighters were able to knock down the flames after 6 p.m. 

No cause was yet established for what started the blaze.
