Firefighters battled a structure fire for more than four hours Wednesday night in South Bryan. The blaze destroyed a mobile home of a family of seven.
Around 8 p.m., Bryan County and Richmond Hill fire departments responded to a call on Rosemont Road off of Cartertown Road. Bryan County Assistant Fire Chief Otis Willis said when crews arrived, the home was “heavily involved” in fire.
“They pretty much lost everything they owned because they were away from home,” he said.
The family of seven was at church during the time of the fire, he said, and other than a few firefighters getting a little overheated, no injuries were reported.
Willis said the doublewide mobile home was destroyed, and that because the damage is so extensive, there is probably no way to tell how the fire started, but suspicious activity is not suspected.
“It took a large amount of water to totally extinguish it to where the crew was comfortable to leave,” Willis said.
