(Gwinnett County Fire)

A fire in Gwinnett County has displaced a family of five early Sunday morning.

Fire officials tell FOX 5 they were called by a neighbor reporting a house fire on the 1500 block of Sisters Court in unincorporated Lawrenceville.

When crews arrived at the scene, they found the garage fully engulfed in flame and all occupants out of the house.

During their attempt to put out the blaze, firefighters were forced out of the home after the roof collapsed. Eventually, the fire was brought under control around 3:30 a.m., but not before it caused heavy damage.

No injuries were reported in the fire.
