BUFORD - An overnight fire did heavy damage to a house on Old Oaks Road in Buford.

At this point, it appears the fire started in a vehicle inside the garage. The vehicle was destroyed. Investigators said the entire home suffered smoke damage.

Everyone inside the house was able to escape safely, and there were no injuries.
