Live power lines impeded Banks County firefighters in their battle against a home fire Saturday.

Units from Banks County Fire/EMS and Lee Arrendale State Prison Fire Department were dispatched to the multi-level home at 513 David Hill Road, Maysville, at 4:47 p.m.

“Upon arrival, they found a single-family, multi-level residential structure fully involved with fire,” said Banks County Fire/EMS Chief Steve Nichols. “Units made a defensive attack on the fire, which was delayed due to live power lines down blocking the driveway. Georgia Power was contacted and arrived an hour and 25 minutes later.”

The home, which was undergoing renovations, was a total loss, Nichols said. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

No injuries were reported.

The incident lasted nearly four hours.
