At least six people died and six others were injured after a fire broke out at a house in the US state of Georgia on Monday.

The fire incident occurred close to Newnan, Georgia, about 42 miles southwest of Atlanta.

Dispatchers were notified about the fire shortly before 5 a.m. and the caller said some people may still be inside, Coweta County officials said in a news release as quoted by USA Today.

“We also had five people that were already outside,” said Robby Flanagan, fire chief of Coweta County Fire Rescue, at a news conference Monday morning. “At that time, we found out that there were six more, so there was a total of 11 people at this residence.”

“We transported the first five victims that were out of the house upon arrival to Grady Hospital,” Flanagan, fire chief. “We did find out that a couple of them are in serious condition at this time.”

A Coweta County Firefighter reported suffering from minor injury.
