When firefighters arrived, there was smoke showing from the eaves and the second and third floor and 2 people were home at the time, and they were able to get out safely. No injuries have been reported Judge said.
Aerial footage from Sky Ranger helicopter showed heavy flames shooting from the top of the home. Numerous fire vehicles were surrounding the structure.
