Resident Escapes Eastside Blaze Without Injury

A Savannah woman is being helped by the Red Cross after a house fire on Saturday. The blaze broke out about 3:45pm in a house on Hamilton Court on Savannah's eastside. Firefighters say an overloaded power strip may have caused the initial blaze, which then spread when a gas line outside the home ruptured, causing damage to the outside.

One resident was at home when the fire broke out and she was able to get out without injury. Firefighters turned off the gas and the fire was quickly extinguished.

The blaze is under investigation.
