Valdosta Firefighters rescue family

February 1, 2007

Valdosta - Valdosta Firefighters rescues a family of four from a fire last night.

The two story house on Force Street caught fire around 11:30 PM.

A woman including her three small children were still inside on the second floor.

A witness told firefighters he saw a man running from the house just before the fire started.  "Arson is the hardest case to prove unless you say I did it or someone said I saw him do it or if you left incriminating evidence there at the scene, then we can prove that. But right now, we are working it in terms of investigating," says Capt. James Williams.

The fire started on the lower level of the home.

Fire Fighters estimate there was 40 thousand dollars worth of damage.

Sabrina Hudson and her children were treated for smoke inhalation and released from the hospital.
