TIFTON, Ga. (WALB) - A fire happened at a home at Tifton’s Pink Motel early Sunday morning.

The call came in around 11 a.m., according to Lt. Steve Hyman with the Tifton Police Department.

Officers on patrol noticed the fire and the fire department responded and put out the fire, Hyman said.

The fire was contained to one room.

There was no one inside at the time of the fire and there were no injuries, according to Hyman.
