Fire destroys Garden City home

GARDEN CITY, GA (WTOC) - Garden City firefighters responded to a house fire on Ogeechee Road. The home was located in a non-hydrant zone so tanker trucks had to be called in.

Fire officials believe the fire started in the back of the building, possibly in the kitchen area.

The smoke was so heavy motorist had to pull over on the side of the road.

No one was injured in the fire, but there are some family pets that did not make it out. A pet boa constrictor was successfully rescued.
