Childs said a neighbor called the Fire Department before 8:30 a.m. about a fire at the home, in the 100 block of Ann Street. No one was inside the home during the fire, and no one was injured, Childs said.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames in 11 minutes, according to Childs. The assistant fire chief said 20 percent of the home was destroyed by heat and flame damage, while smoke damage was present throughout the house.
A man who identified himself as the home’s owner declined to talk to a reporter at the scene after the fire had been put out.
