SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The Savannah Fire Department (SFD) says a morning fire displaced one person.

SFD responded at 3:23 a.m. to the scene at an apartment in the 1700 Block of Habersham Street.

Officials say the fire appeared to have originated near a scooter, which was parked beneath the apartment’s stairwell. 

SFD says no one was injured. One resident was displaced.

A cause of the fire was not released at the time of this report.

SFD says the blaze ended the City of Savannah’s 16-day fire safety streak.

An additional red light will be added to the Fire Safety Wreath at Savannah Fire Department Headquarters.

The program runs until January 2.
