Banks County fire investigators continue to probe the cause of a fire that destroyed a home Saturday night. 

At 10:47 p.m. Saturday, May 11, units from Banks County Fire/EMS and Lee Arrendale State Prison Fire Department responded to 221 Ladd Road, a Commerce address, for a reported structure fire, according to Banks County Fire/EMS Chief Steve Nichols. 

“Upon arrival, they found a single-family residence fully involved with fire,” Nichols said. 

No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported. 

Firefighters remained on scene until 2:35 a.m. Sunday. 

The American Red Cross was called to assist the family with immediate needs.
