Owners of Burned Home Identified
But investigators "are unable to definitively conclude that the bodies" pulled from the rubble of a Ball Ground home are Ricky, Darlene and Lindsey Norrell.
No one has heard from Ricky, Darlene and Lindsey Norrell all day.
And while a spokesman for the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said that "it appears likely" that the three bodies pulled from the rubble of a fire at a Ball Ground home this morning are theirs, Lt. Jay Baker said investigators can't "definitively conclude that" at this time.
"The bodies," Baker said, "have not been identified."
According to Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services spokesman Tim Cavender, neighbors called 911 after hearing an explosion at 818 Spriggs Trail at about 3:45 a.m.
The home belonged to 49-year-old Ricky Norrell and his 46-year-old wife Darlene, Baker said. They lived at the home with their 19-year-old daughter Lindsey.
When Lt. Wesley Densmore and other firefighters arrived on the scene, the house was already on the ground.
Investigators with the sheriff’s office and the fire department are still on the scene trying to piece together the cause of the fire, which has not been determined.
