The office of Deming, Parker, Hoffman, Campbell & Daly off Jimmy Carter Boulevard has moderate smoke and water damage, says Gwinnett Fire. No one was reported injured.

A law office office off Jimmy Carter Boulevard in unincorporated Norcross was damaged in a fire Wednesday afternoon.

While people were reportedly inside the building during the incident, everyone was evacuated in time and no one was reported injured, according to a news release from Gwinnett County Fire spokesman Lt. Colin Rhoden.

For the incident, fire crews were dispatched around 3:09 p.m. to the law office of Daly, located at 4851 Jimmy Carter Blvd. The 911 caller said the fire was coming from the front of the business, and officers arrived to find smoke coming from the top of of the building.

After the office was clear of people, the fire crew found the source of the flames and extinguished it using fire attack hose lines.

The business experienced moderate smoke and water damage from the fire and in part to fire control efforts and tactics, said Rhoden.

He added that the fire source was attributed to an HVAC system that was being worked on, but the incident commander on scene considers the fire to be undetermined.

Equipment on the Scene:

4-Engines, 2-Ladder Trucks, 1-Medic Ambulance, 1-Medic Supervisor, 1-Battalion Chief, 1-District Commander, 1-Squad, 1-Air and Light Truck, 1-Safety Officer
