Electrical Issue Suspected Cause of Brentwood Drive Fire; Resident Transported to Augusta Burn Center


SAVANNAH, GA (Tuesday, July 28, 2020) – Savannah Fire Department Investigators suspect, but have not been able to definitively confirm, wiring as the cause of the early morning fire that severely damaged a residential structure and left one man with second degree burns.

At 1:40 a.m., Tuesday, July 28, the Savannah Fire Department was dispatched to a fire in the 2100 Block of Brentwood Drive, near Skidaway and DeRenne. The resident escaped the blaze, but was injured and had to be transported to the Augusta Burn Center for treatment.

The fire was fueled by a large amount of personal items stored throughout the home. Firefighters had to take a defensive stance while working to control the blaze because bullets were exploding inside the raging fire. However, units quickly extinguished the blaze and rescued a kitten from the charred remains on the grounds. The resident’s adult cat has not been located. Fire investigators spent Tuesday morning searching the severely damaged structure for remaining evidence that would enable them to determine the cause.
