By Lauren Hunter Multimedia Journalist

A Friday morning house fire on U.S. 129 near the Hall and Jackson County line caused traffic delays for roughly three hours.

According to Christie Grice with Hall County Fire Rescue, crews were dispatched to a house fire in the 3200 block of U.S. 129 around 9:15 a.m. They found a vacant, single story house fully engulfed in flames.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire, and traffic was temporarily diverted to the new westbound lane of the highway. All lanes reopened around noon.

No one was living at the home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported. A cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
