ROME, Ga. (AP) - Fire has engulfed two buildings in the northwest Georgia city of Rome.

Authorities say the blaze broke out around 4:15 a.m. Wednesday at a doctor’s office on North Fifth Avenue.

Authorities tell CBS Atlanta that flames quickly spread from that building to a second structure next door.

WAGA-TV reports that one building has completely burned to the ground and the other one was still burning shortly before dawn Wednesday.

The fire is near some motels in the city and several streets north of Floyd Medical Center. Rome police had blocked off some roads and were asking motorists to avoid the area.

No injuries have been reported.

Rome is about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta.
