Fire crews were able to extinguish the blaze, which was said to have started in the chimney. No injuries were reported, but the home sustained extensive damage.
Earlier Wednesday, wintry conditions led to power outages at various spots across the city, including on Winterthur Lane near Northside Drive and also on Northwood Drive near Sierra Place.
At 3 p.m., home power outages in Sandy Springs totaled approximately 1,600, but had been reduced to 23 by late Wednesday night.
