VALDOSTA — The Valdosta Fire Department responded to a house fire at 1904 Houston Avenue Tuesday morning. Investigators have noted the cause of the fire as electrical.

Upon arrival, fire personnel reported heavy smoke conditions coming from the eaves of the structure. The residents said that they were alerted by a smoke detector and quickly exited the residence. VFD firefighters conducted primary and secondary searches to confirm all residents were safely out of the residence and were also able to safely rescue the family’s dog from the home. VFD firefighters had the fire under control within an hour of responding.

No family members were injured; however, the fire, which was mostly contained to the attic, resulted in an estimated $30,000 in damages. The family of five is being cared for by the American Red Cross.
