Apartment fire in Strathmore Estates

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - An apartment was destroyed by fire Friday night in Savannah's Strathmore Estates.

Fire crews say the blaze started in a vacant unit. Eight trucks showed up and knocked the fire down in about 15 minutes.

The worry was it would spread to nearby homes.

"The heat from the fire damaged this building over to the side so there was some radiating heat and whenever there are buildings this close together there is always the danger of the fire jumping to another building," said Battalion Chief Michael Lloyd of Savannah Fire.

Fire investigators are still trying to determine what started the blaze.

No one was injured.
