ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - The cause of a fire that burned two homes Friday morning in northeast Atlanta is under investigation.

Atlanta Fire Rescue says its fire crews responded to the fire on the 200 block of Martha Avenue around 5:25 a.m. and found heavy flames coming from two neighboring homes. One car was also engulfed in flames.

Family members tell us their 85-year-old godmother was living inside the home that went up in flames. She was inside with her son at the time and they both made it out safe.

Both homes suffered significant damage. No injuries were reported.

The Red Cross has been called to assist.
