CBS Atlanta reports that some neighbors living near the home along Spring Mountain Road have been evacuated.
Cobb County police were sent to the home around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say the woman was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries sustained during the fight.
Cobb County Police Officer Mike Bowman tells WXIA-TV that negotiators early Wednesday morning were trying to convince the husband to leave the house.
Powder Springs is about 20 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta.
