The occupants were not home at the time of the fire but returned home to discover the fire and notify the fire department. The structure received heavy fire damage to the front half of the structure and heavy smoke and heat damage to the remaining half. Three engines, one ladder truck a chief officer and a safety officer responded to the initial alarm.
