An investigation is underway after a house in Woodstock was left a total loss following a large fire Saturday evening, officials said.
The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded around 10:27 p.m. Saturday to the 200 block of Martin Drive in Woodstock for a reported residential structure fire.
Firefighters arrived on the scene within four minutes to find a two-story home with smoke and flames showing.
Alex Vucha, a spokesperson for the Woodstock Fire/Rescue District, said firefighters quickly stretched a hose line to the front of the residence and established a positive water supply at a nearby hydrant.
Heavy flames were present on the first and second floors of the home.
The Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) was activated to the box level to bring additional fire resources to the scene.
There were five occupants in the home when the fire began and all five evacuated safely, Vucha said.
The fire was considered under control within 60 minutes but overhaul operations continued for an additional two hours.
The structure and contents are considered a complete loss and the house was deemed uninhabitable, Vucha said.
The damage is estimated at $350,000. No injuries were reported in the incident.
The fire is believed to have begun in the garage but the cause remains under investigation by the Woodstock Fire/Rescue District.
Firefighters were called back to the home around 5:30 a.m. Sunday after a neighbor saw flames coming from the roof again.
The fire was mitigated within 10 minutes.
