The fire had started in the garage of the two-story home. Nobody was home, so firefighters had to force their way in. Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames before they spread to other parts of the home. The home did suffer “extensive” smoke damage across both floors, however. 

The fire appeared accidental and was likely caused by “smoking materials” in the garage, according to a fire investigator.
