VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) – Valdosta's oldest house went up in flames this morning.
The J. T. Roberts House in the historic district on Wells Street caught fire. It was built in 1845. Firefighters saw the fire during a shift change 10 minutes before eight.
They fought the fire for about two hours because of the high winds this morning. It started in the rear of the house.
They're still out making sure the hot spots are out and working to determine the cause of fire. House has been vacant for while, but it's been a work in progress for several years to restore it.
