APPLING, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Columbia County firefighters rushed to the scene of a residential fire early Friday.

The fire was reported at 5:30 a.m. at a single-story double-wide mobile home in the 2700 block of Scotts Ferry Road.

When firefighters arrived, they said flames and smoke were visible but that everyone was out of the house except for animals.

The home was at the end of a long driveway, requiring quite a length of firehose to reach it. However, crews reported most of the flames had been extinguished by 5:50 a.m.

It was the third day in a row for an early morning fire in the CSRA.

On Thursday, a fifth-wheel RV trailer was destroyed in a fire that was reported around 6 a.m. in the 2600 block of Clanton Road west of Evans. No one was hurt.

And in a blaze around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, an Augusta home went up in flames that also damaged the house next door in the 1700 block of Walker Street. One of the homes was not occupied, but seven people were displaced from the other home.
