Crews put out house fire on Shady Grove Lane

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - A home caught fire on Shady Grove Lane, near the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens, on Friday afternoon.

In video, you can see smoke coming through the roof and firefighters with a ladder set up outside the second story window above the garage.

While at the scene, we spoke with a neighbor who says when he looked outside, the home was fully engulfed in flames.

"Our concern was, 'was anybody in the house?' And we found out that one of the people that was in the house got out and that was our main concern. This community is mourning. As you can see, the house almost totally destroyed, but as a community, we will rally behind them and hopefully we'll get everything back together," said Larry Guillory, neighbor.

Guillory says the person inside the home was rescued by two neighbors.

We do not know if anyone else was injured. As soon as we hear back from Savannah Fire and Emergency Services, we will let you know.
