LITHONIA, Ga. (CBS46) — One person has died after a fire ripped through four different homes in Lithonia early Wednesday morning.

Details are still limited at this time, but we know the fire took place in the 6000 block of Berryside Drive in the Berryhill subdivision. The fire started in one home and then spread to homes next door.

When firefighters were attempting to clear the homes affected by the fire, they found the body of one victim. The identity of that person has yet to be released. No other injuries were reported.

A neighbor provided this video to CBS46 reporter Jasmina Alston, showing the fire as it was fully engulfing one of the homes.

CBS46 has a crew on the way to the scene and we will provide an update as soon as more information becomes available.

This story will be updated.
