Valdosta - A south Georgia woman still hasn't seen her home that was devastated by fire over the weekend.  Valdosta city employee Mae Gardener was in Pennsylvania for her daughter's gymnastics competition Saturday when the fire department was called to her home on Force Road.

The fire had destroyed the interior and rear of two story home.   Valdosta Interim Fire Marshal James Williams says "Most the walls are still standing but the back of the house and the upper portion of that same structure is gone. It's not a total loss, it can be repaired, but no its not habitable right now. They can't live in it."

Investigators aren't sure what caused the fire.  Gardener will assess the damage herself when she returns from Atlanta later this week.
