Officials told NewsChannel 15 that a neighbor spotted flames at the front door of the home and called 911. The homeowner arrived and rescued a dog from the home before firefighters arrived, officials said. By the time crews arrived, the home was fully involved with flames, with fire rising out of the roof.

Four departments combined with at least 13 apparatuses to extinguish the blaze.

No injuries were reported.
