Man dies in house fire

December 15, 2003

Tift County - A Tift County man was killed in a house fire.

Two chimneys were left standing after a four bedroom wooden home burned on Dillard Road in Tift County Saturday night.

Fifty-nine-year-old Henry Harris couldn't get out. Harris was found dead near the doorway.

James Harris says there was no way to rescue his brother. He explains, "When I came out, that blaze was way up there and it didn't take but two seconds for it got all of it."

Harris' house did not have a smoke detector. Investigators don't yet know what caused the fire.
