SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A fire damaged a home on Garfield Street. The Southside Fire Dept. and EMS responded with about 16 crewmembers.

Fire officials say it looks like someone was doing mechanical work in the back of the house and the wall caught fire and then it spread to the attic.

"There was a lot of smoke that they tried to take down, but it was really thick so they had to call in about two or three more fire trucks," said nearby neighbor Deedra Ivy.

The home sustained moderate damage. There were no injuries.
