Fireighters say they aren’t sure how the fire started, but it didn’t start inside the home rather outside towards the back.

It took 12 minutes to put it out, according to Battalion Chief Chris Ward.

Ward says there isn’t much damage inside the home beyond that left from fighting the fire, like water damage.

Ward says the homeowners weren’t home at the time.
