When firefighters first arrived on scene they reported a single story wood-framed structure fully involved in flames. The incident commander advised all personnel to only fight this fire from the outside because of the potential of collapse. Crews from city station 11, Mount Pleasant, Vinton and Clearbrook had the fire under control after about 45 minutes.
The resident was not home at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported.
A neighbor called 911 to report the fire.
Fire investigators have ruled this fire as “undetermined” because of the extreme fire damage and collapse of the roof and floor. The home is considered a total lost with damage estimates at $75,000.
