COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- The Cobb County Fire Department is investigating a blaze that damaged two condos.

The fire broke out shortly before 4 a.m. at the Riverview at Vinings townhouse community at Riverview Road and Landsmere Drive, just off Interstate 285. Investigators believe it started outside a seven-unit building, then spread, partially collapsing the roof.

A Cobb County Fire spokesperson said one townhouse was destroyed in the blaze. Another suffered extensive water damage. A total of eight people were displaced, but no one was hurt.

Red Cross spokesperson Sherry Nicholson said the agency will help the seven adults and one child who lost their homes by providing food, lodging and other necessities.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
