A mother and son stood by helplessly as they watched their home go up in flames shortly before 7 p.m. in the 500 block of Pate Rogers road in eastern Liberty County Friday night.
According to Liberty County Fire Services Chief, Brian Darby when units from the Liberty County Fire Services, along with units from Midway Fire and Rescue and a unit from Riceboro arrived on scene they encountered the single story wood frame home engulfed in flames.
Darby said the age of the home as well as a tin roof made the Fire difficult to fight. The mother and son were not home at the time and it is not known how the fire began. The Red Cross has been called to assist the family.
