After arriving on the scene shortly after 2:35 p.m., firefighters found the occupants of the home outside and smoke coming from the roof vents of the house, owned by Martha Simms.

An electrical wire was discovered inside burning insulation. After ensuring the power had been deactivated from the structure, the crew used two water extinguishers to cool the insulation.
