It took fire crews around 20 minutes to extinguish the blaze, but not before it destroyed the majority of the primary bedroom and its contents. The remainder of the approximately 3,000 square foot home suffered heavy smoke and water damage.

“[The first arriving unit] requested a full working alarm assignment, which consists of 6 pieces of equipment, 2 battalion chiefs, and a safety captain,” said Atlas. “They all responded out, and very quickly a room and contents fire in the second story was extinguished.”

1 resident was home when the fire broke out and was able to evacuate safely. No injuries to residents or fire personnel were reported. 

The fire was declared under control at approximately 8:15 p.m., though crews remained on scene for roughly 3 hours for mop up.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
