House goes up in flames

POULAN, GA (WALB) - Firefighters in Worth County had no trouble finding a home fully engulfed in flames Wednesday morning. It was just two days ago fire crews were called to the same home at 325 Pepper Street.

Around 4:00 a.m. Wednesday, a neighbor called 911 to report flames coming from the front of a home next door. Poulan and Worth County firefighters responded to the call where they were met with heavy fire and thick smoke.

The home owner, Jerry Lowery, and his three kids were not inside the home. The family was forced out Monday morning after a smaller fire caused smoke damage inside the house. Fire officials said electricity had been cut to the home following Monday morning's fire.  

Poulan Police Chief Larry Whisenant said the cause of the latest fire was not immediately known and is currently ruled suspicious.  

No one was injured during the fire and the house is a complete loss.

An investigator with the state fire marshal's office has been called in to investigate both fires.
