As fire units responded to the blaze, officials said they had the blaze contained and dying inside of 30 minutes. However, authorities remained on scene into the night monitoring the site and digging through debris for “hot spots.” West said a standard investigation concluded the cause to be an electrical issue.

No one was injured in the fire, and West has confirmed with FetchYourNews that no adjacent buildings were damaged in the fire or the emergency response. The main house, however, suffered extreme damage as most of the roof burned away and the rest of the house suffered smoke and water damage during the incident.

Chief West stated that they received the call to respond to the fire at 6:50 p.m. and had North Avenue closed almost the entire time units were on scene, until just before 11 p.m. that night.
