LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Fire investigators say a house fire in Lawrenceville, just northeast of Atlanta, appears to be an arson blaze.

Gwinnett County fire officials say the fire was reported by a neighbor, who saw smoke pouring from the single-store home, on Monday afternoon.

Authorities say no one was home when firefighters arrived, and no injuries were reported. They say a family of four adults and two children were displaced from the home, and the American Red Cross was contacted to provide temporary assistance to them.

Fire investigators said in a statement late Wednesday that they found evidence of fires set in multiple rooms inside the house.
