Valdosta home destroyed by fire

April 30, 2003

Valdosta - A South Georgia home was destroyed by fire Monday night.

The home on Baytree Road in Valdosta caught fire around 9:00. Three people were inside, but escaped without injury. Firefighters believe the fire started in a window air conditioning unit.

"When the air conditioning was burning the plate glass window burst, and let air inside," said Lt. James Williams, Valdosta Fire Department.  "That's why we had such a rapid spread of fire."

The home was completely engulfed when firefighters arrived. They extinguished the fire within 15 minutes.
