Fire destroyed a home in the Buford community on Monday morning, and now a couple, their three children and two dogs are homeless.
But Teresa Coley, 32, is thankful she was at Eastside Academy taking adult education classes, her husband, Charles, 44, a contractor, was at work, and her three children were at school.
Before Charles left to run errands Monday, he put the family’s two dachshunds in a kennel outside the house on Rowell Road.
“The main thing is, no one was in it,” Coley said. “Nobody was hurt.”
