VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Eight people in Valdosta are searching for new places to live after a fire at a boarding house.

"I went to the laundry mat and I happened to look over there," said Wanda Wright. "I said that look like my auntie's house over there on fire and I seen it coming up from the chimney and I ran over and I said 'hey, hey what's going on?' She was already out the door."
