Firefighters battled a house fire early Friday morning in Savannah.
Savannah Fire responded to the call around 4:45 a.m. The single-story home, located in the 1100 block of Augusta Avenue, was fully engulfed in flames and smoke when fire crews arrived. The three occupants of the home were already outside.
Officials say two of the residents got out on their own, but Savannah-Chatham Metro police had to assist a third resident from the home. Officers reported hearing movement in the home so they sprang into action, kicking down the door.
