The house was fully engulfed by flames by the time crews arrived and continued to spread quickly, Arie said. However, the occupants were already out of the house and there were no injuries suffered.

Eighteen departments assisted in fighting the fire, which continued throughout the night.

Three vehicles were removed from the garage. Though damaged, they did not appear to be beyond repair, Arie said.

The fire district was still working on a monetary damage estimate to the house Wednesday, as well as determining its point of origin and cause, Arie said.
