Fire heavily damages home east of Daniel Field in Augusta
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A fire in Augusta this morning has left a home severely damaged and a tenant displaced.
Around 9 a.m., the Augusta Fire Department responded to reports of a house fire in the 1400 block of Stovall Street.
At about 10:30 a.m., the department reported the fire was under control but crews continued to perform salvage work at the home just north of Wrightsboro Road and a few blocks east of Daniel Field.
Multiple crews arrived and worked to contain the fire. The majority of the damage was centered around the back porch of the home, which is where the fire is believed to have started, authorities report.
The fire left the home charred and damaged. One neighboring home had a small section of siding melt due to the heat of the fire when it was at its most intense.
No one was home at the time of the fire, but the occupant of the home will be displaced. No injuries were reported from the fire.
The cause of the fire is currently undetermined, the Augusta Fire Department reports.
