The Long County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department is based in Ludowici.

A fire that broke out late Saturday evening destroyed a mobile home in northern Long County.

Long / Ludowici Volunteer Fire & Rescue Chief Chris Moss said the fire broke out around 9:30 p.m. Saturday on Richard Blocker Road just off of Joe Kennedy Road. 

When fire crews arrived they noticed heavy smoke and flames coming from the home and immediately called Tattnall County Fire & Rescue along with the Long State Prison Fire Team for mutual aid.

It took firefighters just a little over an hour to put out the fire. The home was completely destroyed. No one was home at the time of the fire, however several people who live at the residence are now homeless.

Long County Sheriff's Office and Excelsior EMS also responded to the scene. There were no injuries, the cause of the fire is under investigation.
