Woman, 53, found dead at scene of townhome fire

Posted: Updated:

Fire officials in Atlanta's northeastern suburbs are investigating a blaze at a townhome, where a woman was found dead inside.

Gwinnett County fire officials say the 53-year-old woman was found in the room where the Saturday evening fire occurred in the townhome on Heritage Valley Road in Norcross.

Fire officials said in a statement that foul play does not appear to be a cause of the blaze.

Relatives told authorities the woman was a heavy smoker, but fire officials said they were not certain whether smoking played a role in causing the fire.
