Battalion Chief Mike Farmer said crews were dispatched at 5:46 p.m. Sunday after receiving multiple reports about the fire on the 1300 block of Smoke Tree Lane east of Highway 101.
He said the second floor of the house and attic were “well involved in fire” when the first crews arrived at the house.
“An aggressive interior attack with coordinated vertical ventilation allowed crews to knock down the main body of fire,” Farmer said.
Firefighters conducted a search of the residence and determined no one was inside. Two dogs were safely evacuated, however.
No one was injured.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Farmer said. While the extent of damage had not yet been determined, union representatives said crews saved “a huge portion of the house.”
