AUGUSTA, Ga. – (WJBF) A fire broke out at a home on the 500 block of Beaufort Drive just before 4:30 Tuesday morning. Augusta firefighters say a man who was inside told them he was cooking when he noticed flames behind him.
Nobody was injured in the blaze. Chief Chris Reid says the house is not a total loss but is unlivable for now. No cause has been determined yet. The man in the home told firefighters a candle on a bedside nightstand might have started it. An investigation will take place later Tuesday.
