Family displaced by house fire on Riverview Road


Southside Firefighters responded to a structure fire on Riverview Road at approximately 5:45 p.m. Monday.

Firefighters arrived 10 minutes after receiving the call and were able to contain the fire in the garage.

The rest of the house was not damaged.

"They got a line laid and got the fire knocked down real quick before it got up into the interior parts of the wall," said Southside Assistant Fire Chief Hugh Futrell. "Good save of this structure by the guys."

Georgia Power cut the electricity off until firefighters can figure out what caused the fire. The owners of the home will have to stay elsewhere until the cause can be determined.
