Fire Damages Ports Building

A fire at the Georgia Ports has Garden City and Savannah firefighters working side by side. About 4:30am this morning, someone spotted flames coming from a warehouse at the Gate One of the Georgia Ports Authority, right behind the Garden City Fire Department on Main Street.

Garden City firefighters went to work and also called on Savannah firefighters to back them up. When they got to the scene, flames and smoke had already engulfed the building and two cars parked in front were also on fire. The flames were already in the roof and burning the electrical lines.

It took about 20 minutes to bring the fire under control, but crews remained on the scene putting out hot spots.

They are still looking for the cause of that blaze.
