Last week, the Roswell Fire Department responded to 410 Rosemont Parkway (Rosemont Apartments) after a resident reported smoke and fire coming from a dryer inside their apartment.

Roswell Fire Department crews arrived on the scene in under five minutes to find smoke and fire conditions from the roofline of the 10-unit apartment building. Firefighters performed a coordinated primary search for possible occupants while additional crews performed an aggressive interior attack to control the fire. Firefighters rescued one dog, one cat, and one bearded dragon from the building. Firefighters continued to perform salvage, overhaul, and investigative activities for several hours.

No injuries were reported. Four of the units and the attic area sustained significant damage. Damage estimates are not available at the time of this release. It is estimated that 22 residents have been displaced as a result of the fire.
