Worth County, GA (WALB) – Firefighters say the owner found his Minton Road home on fire when he returned from out of town around 1:40PM.

He called 911, but the fire was roaring by the time firefighters got there. It took eight firefighters half an hour to battle the blaze from the outside, but the house was a complete loss.

Thankfully no one was inside at the time of the fire.

"I had talked to the owner this morning and they bought a camper trailer they were setting it up to live in it at this time," said Worth County Asst. Fire Chief Jason Brooks.

Firefighters have not yet determined a cause, but investigators don't suspect arson.
