POULAN, GA (WALB) - A fire at a Poulan home on Friday night claimed all of one family's belongings.

Shortly after 10:30 Friday, the Poulan volunteer fire department, and Worth county firefighters responded to a blaze at 417 West Broad Street.

This was what the home looks like today, the structure was still standing, but everything inside was destroyed.

Neighbors say they heard a loud boom before the fire started.

"We just got a call about a structure fire, we're in the process of putting it out, and after we do that maybe we can see what happened," said Chief Johnny Houston, Poulan Fire Department.

"We got here right after the fire trucks did, everything was up in flames, all of it...everything was on fire it was even in the trees," said Jennifer Barker, Poulan.

A family of four lived in the house and was about to relocate to a new home.

The fire marshall will be at the home on Monday to determine the cause.
