Family loses home to fire Monday morning

Live Oak —

Report from Suwannee County Fire Rescue:

Suwannee County Fire Rescue responded to an alarm at 3:38 a.m. Monday morning for a structure fire located on 104th Street. The occupants were at home asleep with their children at the time of the fire. They reported being woken up by the smoke alarm. The parents noticed some smoke in the home and started yelling for the children. While everyone was exiting out the home they noticed flames in one of the rooms. 911 was called and they waited the arrival of the fire department outside the home.

Suwanee County Fire Rescue arrived on scene to find three quarters of the home fully involved.

Crews fought the fire with a defensive attack and overhaul was extensive due to the heavy fire load. Crews were able to salvage some personal items for the family. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the SCFR Fire Prevention Division. 

No injuries were reported. 

Damage to the brick home was valued at $165,000.

Stations 1, 2, 4 and 35 responded. 

Melody Church in Live Oak is seeking help for this family. You can drop off your donations to Melody Church on US 129 South. For more information, call the church at 364-4800.
