LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Firefighters outside Atlanta rescued a man and woman who were found unresponsive in a burning home.
Gwinnett County Fire Capt. Tommy Rutledge says that someone passing by the home on Lester Road in Lawrenceville around 4:30 a.m. Thursday reported the fire. Arriving crews, who found the structure engulfed in flames, went inside to search for occupants and battle the blaze.
Rutledge said the firefighters found the two people during the initial search and removed them from the home. Authorities said both people were unresponsive. They were taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with advanced life support measures in progress.
Conditions of the two people were not known early Thursday.
