Units arrived to find a single-family home with heavy smoke and fire conditions coming from the structure. An aggressive attack was attempted inside the home, but crews were pulled out due to the deteriorating conditions. Wind and temperatures well below freezing made firefighting efforts difficult. The home was a total loss. There were no injuries to citizens or firefighters. The cause remains undetermined.
