SNELLVILLE, Ga. - Firefighters have found the body of a man in the rubble of a house fire in Gwinnett County Friday.
Firefighters said they faced issues accessing the home, which is downhill and next to a lake, but the flames were growing closer to a nearby home and threatening electrical lines.
A man and a woman escaped the fire with injuries, but a male relative who was staying in the basement did not make it out. Firefighters found the body at 8:20 a.m.
The fire department said the fire was under control by around 2:30 a.m.
Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the fire.
