When firefighters arrived, heavy flames could be seen coming from the residence.

The homeowner explained her family of four, including her grandchild, were sleeping inside, when someone inside noticed the fire. The residents said they attempted to put out the flames with a garden hose, but that did not work.
Wood pallets could be seen burning outside of the residence. The homeowner explained one of the residents rebuilds pallets, as part of his business.
