Cause Unknown in Early-Morning Fire

Savannah firefighters are investigating a suspicious blaze that heavily damaged a home. About 4:30am this morning, firefighters arrived at this house in the 1900 block of Augusta Avenue to find billowing smoke and flames coming through the roof.

They quickly went to work and got water on the blaze, then began searching the home for anyone inside. Fortunately no one was found.

Firefighters were also able to keep the blaze from spreading to the house next door.

The fire was brought under control within minutes, but heavily damaged the home. Fire investigators were called out to determine how that blaze started.
