Boston house fire a total loss

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia man is homeless after a morning fire destroyed his house in Boston.

Fire Departments from Boston, Sunset, and Barwick responded to this house at 305 South Oak Street around 10:40 Friday morning.

The cause of the fire is still unknown, but investigators think it started near the front of the home.

Luckily, the homeowner was not there when it started.

"Given the age of the home and how much fire they reported was involved with the structure when the first unit arrived, we would call it a total loss," said Thomas County Fire Chief Chris Jones.

Thomas County -MS was on scene just for the safety of the firefighters, but no injuries were reported.
