The house where the fire incident occurred is located on Fountain Frontage Road.

“Command was on scene in less than five minutes and the first engine was on-site in nine minutes. It took almost two hours to extinguish and ensure the fire was out. Crews continue to monitor the house this evening to ensure there are no rekindles,” said Krause.
