COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus fire officials say the inside of a home on the city's south side has been gutted by a weekend blaze.

The house, on Lee street, between Cusseta Road and North Lumpkin Road, caught fire late Saturday afternoon.

Fire investigators are working to determine what sparked the flames. Responding Battalion Chief Keith Watson says the home has extensive interior damage.

The homeowner's son tells WTVM crews his family has lived there for 30 years and says his mother went to the store and came home to find their home on fire. The residents think the fire started in the laundry room.

No one was injured.
