Valdosta - Fire officials investigate the cause of a house fire in Valdosta.

As you can see in the video shot by neighbor Theo Brown, flames already engulfed this house on Sherwood Drive when firefighters arrived around noon. The owners were not home today when the fire started. The rear of the house and much of the interior was destroyed.

"I heard all the sirens and happened to look out the window and I said Oh! my neighbor's house was on fire because the blazes were very high. One of the pipes or something had burst in the back, because there were flames gushing out of the pipes," Brown exclaimed.

Firefighters believe the hot tub heater may have caused the fire, but an investigation is underway. This same house was struck by lightning a year ago.
