An early-morning fire in north Highlands has heavily damaged a home, but no injuries have been reported.

The fire was called in just after 5:20, and crews arrived a little before 5:30 to find a one-story brick home with flames and heavy black smoke billowing from the front.

Firefighters were initially told that someone was still inside the house, but they searched and later confirmed that the two adults and one child living there had gotten out safely. The fire was brought under control in less than 30 minutes.

One of the adult occupants told investigators she was awakened by the smoke alarm and went to the front of the home, near the kitchen, and saw the top of the stove on fire. When she awoke the other adult and child, the flames spread quickly and they escaped unharmed.

Fire investigators confirm the burner was in the “on” position, and that appears to be the origin and cause of the fire. The home sustained heavy fire damage.
