Three people were located deceased after a Friday afternoon fire in the South Hampton Mobile Home Park located at 5291 Old Atlanta Road.

The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office and Spalding County Fire Department at 2:34 p.m. today responded to a call reporting a possible suicidal person at the address.

Upon arrival, they found the residence on fire.

Firefighters entered the home and located three victims.

Spalding County Coroner Sonny Foster responded to the scene and pronounced dead all three victims.

SCSO criminal and crime scene investigators responded, and the Georgia Fire Marshal’s Office was requested and was on scene assisting in the investigation.
