CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Southside Firefighters battled a blaze at a home on Dovetail Crossing in Georgetown Wednesday night.

According to fire crews, the fire started in the attic. Flames could be seen shooting from the roof.

Crews say they made holes in the roof to create ventilation. The fire spread to an upstairs bedroom, but firefighters say the damage was minimal.

"There were no flames at first. It was just the smoke and we had to open it up. Once we found it, we were able to extinguish it," said Southside Fire Assistant Chief Ray Sikes.

Investigators are trying to determine what started the blaze.
