Fire Displaces Family of Six

A mother and her five children are homeless after an early-morning fire on East DeRenne Avenue off Skidaway Road. Savannah firefighters were called to the scene a little after 6am this morning. They don't know what caused the fire at this time, but they do know it started in the kitchen.

"The fire was primarily in the kitchen and dining room area," said Matt Stanley with Savannah FD. "There was a lot of heat and smoke damage throughout the house. A lot of flame damage in the kitchen and that's what we found."

Fire investigators were able to save part of the home, but it's in no condition for the family to live there. They are staying with relatives at this time.
