An aggressive exterior fire attack with multiple hose lines was used on the fire, fire officials said.

The homeowner was outside of the residence when firefighters arrived and confirmed there was no one else inside the home.

Crews worked to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading further into the home, fire officials said.

The house sustained significant fire damage to the garage and smoke damage throughout the remainder of the residence, leaving it uninhabitable.
