Fire officials said the location of the flames actually helped firefighters control the blaze. The flames went through the roof and were easier to identify, which made containing it less difficult, according to Don Sable, deputy fire chief.


Fire officials told Channel 11 there is extensive damage to the top floor of the home.

No one was injured in the fire, and it is unclear how the fire started.

The Fire Marshal is investigating the incident.
