Fire destroys home of Third ID soldier

ALLENHURST, GA (WTOC) - A Fort Stewart soldier's home was destroyed in an early morning fire in Allenhurst in Liberty County on Wednesday.  

The home of Juanita Martinez was destroyed in the fire which started shortly before 3am. Martinez, who in newly married, was not home at the time. She was staying at her husband's home in Savannah, but her two children were at the Allenhurst home at the time of the fire. 

Janice Roldan, 20, was awakened by her brother Wilfredo Roldan, when he smelled smoke. Janice, who was in a bedroom at the rear of the house, was able to escape the home before the flames spread. A pet rat and a lizard were lost in the fire.

There's still no word on how the fire started.
