Charlton Street Fire

Savannah fire investigators are looking into a fire on Charlton Street yesterday afternoon. A neighbor spotted flames and called for help. The first crew on the scene worked quickly to get the blaze under control, which was mostly in the attic area.

The older homes and narrow streets and alleys present a special challenge for firefighters.

"Well it's certainly a challenge," said Matt Stanley with Savannah FD. "It's a great concern because of the older structures, so we want to make sure that we get a rapid attack and then there's always the challenge of narrow lanes and making access to the property."

No word yet on what started the fire.
