When firefighters arrived, they discovered heavy fire showing from the rear of the residence. Multiple sheds and items were on fire. The fire quickly spread throughout the home but firefighters knocked it down quickly.

An investigation revealed the fire was started by inappropriately discarded smoking items. There were no injuries and the American Red Cross is assisting with lodging for two adults and two dogs.
