A family of four was displaced on Monday after a fire damaged their home.

Savannah Fire and Emergency Services responded to the home located on Oakland Court just after 1:35 p.m.

Flames had engulfed a carport and extended inside the home when firefighters arrived to the scene.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire damage to the carport and less than half of the interior of the home. The remaining area of the one-story house sustained smoke, heat and water damage.

A 2008 Dodge Ram pickup truck that was parked in the carport also sustained extensive damage from the fire.

One adult was home and was able to evacuate the house and call 911. The American Red Cross is assisting the family, which consisted of two adults and two children.
