Macon-Bibb County firefighters put out a fire Friday morning in the 100 block of Lamar Street.

The 8:30 a.m. fire call went out as a structure fire with persons possible trapped, said Battalion Chief Ferrell Cromer.

Arriving firefighters saw heavy smoke coming from the roof and the blaze on left side of the two-story home.

Firefighters searched but found no one inside, Cromer said.

The fire reached the attic, with the occupied home sustaining heavy damage throughout, he said.

Smoke was easily seen from a distance at the height of the fire.

The fire remains under investigation.
