Family escapes house fire

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A Savannah family will have to stay elsewhere after their home on the corner of Audubon and Cynthia streets caught fire.

Everyone made it out OK. Neighbors say they saw flames coming from roof and smoke through the windows.

"A friend of mine screamed at me while I was coming out the door of my home and told me to call 911. I told my sister to call 911, which she did, but at the same time, I heard trucks already on their way," said resident Marcus Allen.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
