 Thursday, February 27, 2020


More than three hours after a massive fire engulfed a large construction site in downtown Savannah, Georgia, crews were still battling the blaze.

Savannah Fire Department officials said they were still fighting what they earlier called a “massive fire” at the Eastern Wharf complex around 3:30 p.m. Thursday. The fire was reported around 12:30 p.m.

Savannah officials said around 2 p.m. crews were “starting to make some headway” on the fire engulfing the large construction site. No injuries were reported.

The construction site is located on the east side of the downtown area along President Street. Savannah mayor Van Johnson called the fire an “extraordinary event” and said he was very thankful there were no injuries or deaths in the massive fire.

Johnson said officials do not know the cause of the fire as of 2 p.m. Thursday. He said the Savannah fire chief himself was suited up and fighting the fire.
