Crews battle house fire in Colquitt County

COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) - Firefighters in Colquitt County battled an overnight house fire.

Multiple trucks responded to the scene in the 2300 block of Funston Doerun Road.

The fire began around 3 a.m. Monday.

Doerun Fire Chief John Walters said the house has been vacant for at least 15 years.

Walters said the structure was already burnt to the ground when firefighters arrived.

Now crews are trying to cool it down and put out a few hotspots.

It's unclear if anyone was inside the home. Walters said crews won't do an inspection for anyone until daylight.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
