Firefighters responded from Halls 1, 2, and 4, and on-arrival, reported seeing light smoke venting from a basement window. Occupants had evacuated the home and had initiated fire control from the exterior of the structure. Fire crews setup an offensive attack and quickly brought the fire under control.
The home suffered minor fire and smoke damage to the interior of the structure.
There were no civilian or firefighter injuries.
This fire appears to be accidental and caused by a lithium-ion battery charging station.
