Firefighters called to 2S608 Linden Square shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday arrived to find the home engulfed by flames, officials said.
More than 40 firefighters from 10 nearby departments helped contain the blaze, which eventually spread to homes at 2S610 Linden Square and 2S600 Linden Square. The fire was difficult to put out because of nearby natural gas lines, which helped fuel the fire, the news release said.
The fire was brought under control after 7 a.m. Sunday.
According to the news release, the house at 2S608 Linden was "a complete loss." Damage to the house at 2S610 Linden was estimated at $75,000 and damage to 2S600 Linden was estimated at $20,000.
Investigators believe the fire was caused by improperly discarded smoking materials, the release said.
