Crews did not find any occupant or occupants when they arrived on scene to find heavy fire coming from the front of the house, blowing out of the windows, Raisch said.

Neighbors say they have seen people coming and going to the address, the district chief said.

He said it was too early to estimate a dollar amount on the damage to the structure and contents, but noted, “there is heavy damage in that front room. There will be smoke damage throughout.”
