SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Emergency crews responded to a fire at a home on Savannah's south side Wednesday. 

It started in the garage of a home in the 1400 block of Whitfield Park Circle. 

Firefighters had to bring in water tanks because there were no hydrants close enough to the structure. No one was injured.  

"[The] tenants are shaken up, but right now we all realize what's really important is the people and the pets are OK. All the other stuff, I hate to say it - is just stuff - but our lives are most important and everyone is safe," said Jeff Manley, property owner.

The two people living there were renting the home are now forced to seek temporary shelter until the damage is repaired. The owner says he plans to repair all of the damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
