Arlington -- Two South Georgia children, home alone, narrowly escape a fire that destroyed their house. The house at 303 Azalea Street, in Arlington, caught fire just after midnight Sunday while a 15 year-old girl and her younger brother slept.

The girl woke up to smoke filling the house, and told her brother to jump out a first floor window.  Then a passerby saw the fire, kicked open a door and helped the girl escape the flames.

The wood house was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived and the flames had spread to two neighboring houses.  The home was a total loss.

The fire was so hot it melted the windows of the house next door causing thousands of dollars in damage. And, another mobile homes was also damaged by the fire.

It's unclear where the mother, Angela Haynes, was when the fire started. The fire marshall is coming Monday to investigate the cause of the blaze.
