Arson investigators called after Georgia house fire in which a child died

The second child, a 15-year-old boy, was found safe approximately four hours later at another location, the release states.

The residence sustained extensive fire damage throughout the front half and the attic.

A total of seven people lived at the home including two adults and five children, two cats and two dogs.

According to a family member, smoke alarms had been installed in the home but did not activate, the news release states.

Gwinnett County police chaplains and the American Red Cross are assisting the family with temporary needs.

Authorities did not release the identities of the victims. The homicide investigation continues.

I covered education at The Virginian-Pilot from 1991 to 1994, then moved to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 1994 to cover finance. In 1995, I oversaw transportation, which included UPS and Delta Air Lines. In 1996, the Wall Street Journal hired me to be a small-business/entrepreneurship reporter until 2001. I returned to the AJC that year and wrote about nightlife, youth culture, radio and comedy. In 2005, I began covering TV and have since added film. I've had the honor to interview Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Steven Spielberg, Billy Crystal and even Gallagher. I've been blogging since 2004. I've also been the paper's "American Idol" expert since day one in 2002. I love tennis, pop culture, karaoke and seeing live events, be it concerts, plays or comedy shows. I have a delightfully adorable English bulldog named Goo Goo and a equally adorable adopted daughter named Vega.","facebook":"https://www.facebook.com/ajcradiotv","twitter":"https://twitter.com/ajcrodneyho","custom_ajc_phone":"404-526-5688","books":[],"podcasts":[],"education":[{"name":"Oyster Bay High School, 1987"},{"name":"Princeton University, B.A., political economics, 1991"},{"name":"George State University Robinson School, MBA marketig, 2007"}],"awards":[],"last_updated_date":"2021-03-30T12:51:24.297Z","image":"https://s3.amazonaws.com/arc-authors/ajc/3701b49c-0a45-4a95-a5c8-7d7a96ec061f.png","expertise":"2, Film, TV, radio, comedy, things to do around town, business","beat":"Entertatinment","author_type":"Staff","type":"author","bio_page":"/staff/rodney-ho/","instagram":"https://www.instagram.com/rodneyhoajc/"}}}]},"description":{"basic":"A consortium of investors offered to buy the assets of Atlanta-based Cumulus Media, one of the largest radio station owners in America."},"display_date":"2022-04-15T19:11:44.066Z","headlines":{"basic":"Consortium makes unsolicited offer to buy Atlanta-based Cumulus Media for $1.2 billion"},"promo_items":{"basic":{"credits":{"by":[{"byline":"CUMULUS ","name":"CUMULUS ","type":"author"}]},"height":1200,"subtitle":"Cumulus Media logo","type":"image","url":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/ajc/RNIRTWBPDVDCNBCNUYGIHN27UU.png","width":1800}},"taxonomy":{"sections":[{"_id":"/life/radiotvtalk-blog","_website":"ajc","type":"section","version":"0.6.0","name":"Georgia Entertainment Scene Blog","description":"News about entertainers, music, movies and TV shows with Georgia ties, Atlanta TV and radio","path":"/life/radiotvtalk-blog","parent_id":"/life","parent":{"default":"/life"},"additional_properties":{"original":{"_id":"/life/radiotvtalk-blog","site":{"section_comments_enabled":"Yes","site_description":"News about entertainers, music, movies and TV shows with Georgia ties, Atlanta TV and radio","site_title":"Georgia Entertainment Scene Blog"},"navigation":{"nav_title":"Georgia Entertainment Scene"},"_website":"ajc","name":"Georgia Entertainment Scene Blog","order":{"ComposerNav":1052,"default":2011,"SectionMap":1025,"MainMenuRedesign2021":2004,"AmpNav":2011},"parent":{"default":"/life","ComposerNav":"https://news.google.com/","TopNav":null,"BottomNav":null,"TopNavRedesign":null,"SectionMap":"https://news.google.com/","MainMenuRedesign2021":"/things-to-do","AmpNav":"/life"},"ancestors":{"TopNav":[],"default":["https://news.google.com/","/life"],"TopNavRedesign":[],"SectionMap":["https://news.google.com/"],"MainMenuRedesign2021":["https://news.google.com/","/things-to-do"],"AmpNav":["https://news.google.com/","/life"]},"inactive":false,"node_type":"section"}},"_website_section_id":"ajc./life/radiotvtalk-blog"}],"primary_section":{"path":"/life/radiotvtalk-blog","name":"Georgia Entertainment Scene Blog"}},"teaseImageObject":{"credits":{"by":[{"byline":"CUMULUS ","name":"CUMULUS ","type":"author"}]},"height":1200,"resized_obj":{"src":"https://www.ajc.com/resizer/g3Mi7w8COttWvM7byUfjtpnH3xA=/80x80/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/ajc/RNIRTWBPDVDCNBCNUYGIHN27UU.png"},"subtitle":"Cumulus Media logo","type":"image","url":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/ajc/RNIRTWBPDVDCNBCNUYGIHN27UU.png","width":1800},"type":"story","_id":"J2V7VDO4BRB4NGIP3ZSU6LGWXM"},{"canonical_url":"https://news.google.com/news/georgia-news/expansion-of-ga-ports-pays-dividends-to-economy-companies-jobs/N2P2PDMEQRFSFMDPQINHLZR64Q/","canonical_website":"ajc","credits":{"by":[{"_id":"michael-e-kanell","type":"author","version":"0.5.8","name":"Michael E.
