<p>First arriving firefighters found heavy flames on the upper sundeck, which quickly extended to the deck roof, attic space and living room. </p>
<p>“Crews did an excellent job knocking the fire down with large diameter hand lines prior to making entry into the structure to complete a primary search and conduct fire control operations,” said Gartrell. </p>
<p>Though the family was at home when the blaze ignited, they did get away with no significant injuries. All their pets escaped safely as well. </p>
<p>The fire investigator is now on scene looking to determine what started the incident. At this point, the blaze is not being deemed suspicious in nature. </p>
