AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Augusta firefighters were on the scene of a house fire Monday morning just off of Wrightsboro Road.

Crews responded to a home in the 3500 block of Wrightsboro Road, near the intersection of Old Barton Chapel Road, just before 8 a.m. Monday morning.

Fire crews shut down a part of Wrightsboro Road temporarily, so motorists should look for an alternate route if possible.

This fire comes after an abandoned house received minor damage in Augusta on Sunday night. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office says firefighters responded to that fire in the 1900 block of Fenwick Street in Augusta.

According to dispatchers, the initial call came in as smoke coming from a house. The Augusta Fire Department says there were no injuries and there was only minor damage to parts of the house’s interior.
