The cause of a fire that left an Adairsville family without a home Thursday afternoon is undetermined and the case has been closed, Bartow County Fire Department Sgt. Lisa Hahn said.
BCFD arrived at 138 41st St. at 1:26 p.m. to the one-story house owned by Moselle Harris. The fire was under control by 2:39 p.m. but was a total loss, Hahn said.
No occupants were in the home when the fire started, and Red Cross was called in to assist the family.
BCFD and Cartersville Fire Department reported working no other fires in the 24 hours through 9:30 p.m. Thursday.
