She said the home, which had been vacant for about a month, was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.
No injuries were reported in connection with the blaze.
The cause and origin of the fire are still under investigation, Lindstrom said.
She asked that anyone with information about the incident call the fire marshal’s office at (770) 205-4527.
