Macon firefighters battle early morning house fire

Flames lit up the pre-dawn sky around Macon's Cherokee Heights neighborhood early this morning.

Macon-Bibb County firefighters from stations 8 and 6 tackled the flames at a house fire on Courtland Avenue just off Napier Avenue.

When crews arrived on the scene, the one-story wood-frame house was fully engulfed but no one was believed to be inside, said Sgt. Seaborn Rewis.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
