SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Fire investigators are looking into what caused a blaze Wednesday morning at a home on East 32nd Street.

It broke out at about 10:35 a.m. Wednesday. No one was home at the time.

Smoke rendered the house nearly invisible from the street at times as firefighters headed to the top floor of the house, according to Savannah Fire & Emergency Services.

Firefighters say it appears the fire started in kitchen and possibly inside a wall that allowed the fire to burn for an extended period of time before it went through the roof of the two-story home, according to SFES. 

Remodeling was being done on the first floor. There was a residence upstairs.

The home sustained water and smoke damage. The damage was limited to the second floor and attic of the brick structure, according to SFES.

One person has been put out of the home. Volunteers with the American Red Cross are working with that person.
