Fire Breaks Out At Suburban Atlanta Clinic

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Fire officials are investigating what started a blaze at an obstetrics and gynecology office in Marietta that advertises itself as an “abortion services” clinic.

Cobb County Fire spokeswoman Denell Boyd said the fire broke out Wednesday morning in the third-floor of the clinic, and it took more than 20 firefighters to put out the flames.

There were no injuries, but Boyd said there were about 20 employees and several patients in the building when the fire started.

She said the building had “extensive damage” from the fire.

Boyd declined to comment on details of the pending investigation.
