SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Multiple fire crews responded to a home that was fully engulfed in flames off Wilmington Island Road Friday afternoon.

The home was located in the 1700 block.

"It was fully involved when we got here, through the roof at that time. We have about 32 personnel on the scene at this time getting hot spots out, but the fire has been put out," Chief of Fire Operations Wayne Noha said.

There were no injuries reported.

Those who know the family who own the home say that owner actually lives close by.

Southside fire officials said three people were living inside the house, built back in the early 1900s.

"I understand when we got here there were some neighbors, or maybe the homeowner, that were spraying some water hose trying to do what they could until we got here. our units were able to make a fairly decent, quick knocked down as could be expected with the tanker operation," Lt. Kurt Lewis said.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
