VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -
Firefighters in Valdosta are trying to figure out the cause of an early morning fire at a vacant building that shut down portions of two busy roads Thursday.
The building has been used for doctors offices in the past.
A doctor recently bought it but it is destroyed.
This was the scene at 6:30 this morning as firefighters battled a blaze at a vacant building on Northside Drive that used to be the home of doctors' offices. Firefighters got to the scene at 2:30 a.m. It took them two hours to get it under control.
"There were sirens, fire trucks, the whole block was covered," said witness Samantha Kelly.
Portions of Patterson Street and North side Drive were closed until 3:30 Thursday afternoon as firefighters, fire marshals, and the Valdosta Police arson task force investigated.
"Right now it's very high on our investigation list to find out what exactly happened," said Valdosta Fire Chief J.D. Rice.
He says they believe the fire started upstairs in one of the offices
This is what's left of the building. Firefighters tell us its a complete loss
"We got to make sure we leave no stone unturned in determining what happened because it's completely destroyed," said Chief Rice.
He says there's a lot of debris to sift through to try to find out if any accelerants were used.
Dr. Doug Moss confirmed he had just purchased the building but said he didn't have time for an interview. Firefighters hope they can find out the cause soon. Around 25 firefighters battled the blaze.
