LOCUST GROVE, Ga. -- Authorities say one person died late Thursday in what is described as a fierce house fire.
Captain Sabrina Puckett, spokesperson for the Henry County Fire Department, said firefighters arrived at the South Jackson Street address just east of downtown Locust Grove shortly before 11 p.m.
Because the home was already heavily involved in flames, crews were not able to make entry.
The deceased resident was found in the remains of the fire.
Captain Puckett said positive identification of the victim has not been made. The origin and cause of the fire are unknown and under investigation.
