VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Several South Georgia families lose their homes to fire just two days before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Valdosta Fire Department got a call around 4:45 Tuesday afternoon that Azalea Woods Apartments on Mary Street was on fire. Building B, an eight unit two story building, received major damage to the top floor.

The residents of the building are currently being aided by the American Red Cross.

"They gave me somewhere to stay," Tenishia Cobb said. "I'm here now to see what more they can help us with because I don't know where to go from here. I'm very appreciative because I did exactly where I would go with my kids."

The Red Cross also aided two other families with places to stay Tuesday night and will help them with food and clothing.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
