New Year Eve Fire 

Augusta firefighters spent Tuesday morning mopping up a blaze that destroyed most of a home on Murray Street.

Crews got the call just after midnight.

They arrived on the scene to find a single family home on fire from the cellar to the second floor.

Charles Squires of the Augusta Fire Department tells us the family that lives in the home was away when the fire broke out.

Initial reports say that the home is a total loss.
