Family lost everything in house fire a week before Christmas

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

An Ellerslie woman lost everything, including her home, one week before Christmas.

An early morning fire ripped through the home located on Ruth E. Willett Drive, destroying everything.

We spoke with Chief Skip Wyatt at the Ellerslie Volunteer Fire Department.  He said they got the call around 4:30 Sunday morning.

Wyatt says it took 17 firefighters from Ellerslie and Waverly Hall nearly four hours to put the inferno out.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation.  The owner of the home was inside but escaped without being harmed.

Luckily, there were no injuries reported.
