The fire, which started on the first floor, was extinguished, and crews were able to leave the scene by 2 p.m. No one was home at the time of the fire, Lescher said.
Though a damage estimate wasn't available, Lescher said much of the house was left uninhabitable, and the Red Cross was called in for assistance, he said.
A cause of the fire isn't yet known, as authorities continue their investigation.
