CANTON — Firefighters with both Canton and Cherokee County fire departments responded to a blaze at a home in Canton on Monday morning but were unable to fully save the house.
Mike Skibicki, an investigator with the Canton Fire Department, said Monday afternoon that no one was injured in the fire, as the family of five who inhabits it was not home.
The Canton Fire Department was dispatched to the home on the 100 block of West South Street just after 8 a.m. Monday, after a neighbor called 911 to report the fire, Skibicki said.
Before the fire was put out, Skibicki said the home was “fully enveloped.”
With the extensive damage to the home, Skibicki said the family has had to find somewhere else to stay.
“They are displaced,” he said. “But the Red Cross is taking care of them.”
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, Skibicki said.
