Firefighter-Paramedics deployed multiple hand lines to the building as flames began extending out of all the front windows. The roof over the car port had already collapsed. Crews worked for about 25 minutes to bring the fire under control and remained on the scene for 2-1/2 more hours performing overhaul. The interior of the home was gutted and the family lost most of their belongings as well as a vehicle under the carport. The fire appears to have started in the kitchen in the area of the stove. A family member noted they had been cooking earlier. The Red Cross is assisting the family.
