Intense Overnight Blaze Ravages Vacant Home on S. St. Andrews Street

Firefighters battled a fierce blaze overnight as flames engulfed a residence in the 1700 block of S. St. Andrews Street. Responding to the fire call at 1:20 A.M., firefighters arrived to find flames already piercing through the roof.

With a heavy presence on the scene, firefighters employed up to three hoses to combat the inferno.

Fire Marshal Chris Ethridge told Wiregrass Daily News, “The cause of the fire is still being investigated and undetermined at this time. With the roof and walls caving in it will take a while longer to find the cause”.

Tragically, the home, though vacant, suffered extensive damage, with the roof and walls collapsing, rendering it a total loss.
